The International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS) proudly established the IAHS Academy in July 2023 in occasion of the 28th IUGG General Assembly held in Berlin, Germany. The IAHS Academy's mission is to organise summer/winter short schools, training and educational programs to advance and promote hydrological sciences globally.

The IAHS Academy events will also serve IAHS's mission in:

  • Engaging, training and valuing the next generation of hydrologists
  • Supporting young water scientists in achieving an academic or business career supported by state of the art hydrological data, knowledge and tools
  • Foster transdisciplinarity and diversity merging efforts and capacities of the hydrological community with other disciplines both from earth and environmental sciences as well as from social sciences and humanities
  • Promote open science, open data, gender dimension, international cooperation and capacity building across diverse hydro-climate, social, economic and geographic regions of the world.

A shared organisational and scientific effort will be developed by the IAHS Academy that aims to reach a critical mass of lecturers and students that will be selected and supported to join the IAHS Academy events. Key scientific and organisation specifications of IAHS Academy events are:

  • One venue hosting 4 parallel Schools/Topics at the same time
  • Scientific Committees and Local Organization Committees will be formed to co-identify topics, lecturers and invite participants from relevant graduate and post-graduate programs, academic and industry networks, organizations and institutions
  • United Nation agencies (UNESCO IHP, WMO, FAO, etc.) and relevant UN programs and networks are solicited to give patronage, establish synergies and provide support.
