A number of representative case studies aligned with IAHR themes will be assigned to the participating teams. After a period of web-based collaborative engineering work, each team will have the opportunity to present its project outcomes during the 39th IAHR World Congress 2021 in Granada, Spain. A number of project stakeholders, including universities, companies, and public authorities will be involved in the design and mentoring of the case studies. A jury made up of senior IAHR members and representatives from industrial partners will evaluate the teams.
