2020 SYSTA Awardees

The IAHS Sivapalan Young Scientists Travel Awards (SYSTA) initiative was launched in 2018. The aims of SYSTA are to: (1) strengthen attendance of IAHS Meetings from financially disadvantaged countries (FDCs) to address the currently low attendance; and (2) foster high quality science among a new generation of hydrologists.

In early 2020, IAHS were pleased to award nine SYSTA awards up to the maximum award value of €2,000 for attendance at IAHS Commission meetings in 2020. If meetings are postponed or cancelled due to the global pandemic then the awards will be transferred to attendance at the IAHS Scientific Assembly in Montpellier or an IAHS Commission meeting.

The following awards were confirmed for 2020:
