Young Professionals

ICOLD 2019 will offer a unique learning opportunity for individuals from around the world who are in the early stages of their careers. As well as specific events and initiatives targeted at these delegates, the ICOLD 2019 event integrates young professionals (age 35 and under) into all aspects of the program.

Young professionals are especially encouraged to attend ICOLD Technical Committee meetings and workshops, in addition to the Symposium and other events. Attendance will provide a unique opportunity to engage with technical subject matter experts from around the world and participate in the development of leading practices.

Companies and ICOLD National Committees will benefit by having young professionals attend this international event, where they can establish contacts with technical leaders and organizations at the forefront of dam engineering.

In order to support the participation of young professionals in the Annual Meeting / Symposium, we have created a template letter which includes ICOLD’s mission, a summary of the benefits of attending and a table the listing the associated costs.


The Young Professional program will include:

  • ICOLD Young Engineers Forum
  • Networking event for young professionals
  • Young professional paper award
  • Young professional poster award
  • Sponsorship categories to support young professionals
  • Mentorship opportunities
  • Information booth in Exhibition Hall
