YHS has written a short message on the IAHS blog to promote the Young HS initiative. You can read the message on the IAHS blog or by clicking here
Although this post is not strictly related to the main subject of the current post, we got prof. Montanari’s approval to share a message on this blog:
We would like to introduce you to an initiative to set up a network for young (aspiring) scientists in the field of hydrology. The latter is initiated by two M.Sc students that realized that there might be a lot of potential in increasing the involvement of young scientists by means of setting up a network. Examples of benefits could be:
– Stimulate bottom-up research initiatives, initiated by Ph.D/M.Sc peers,
– Improve research opportunities and collaboration by creating an easy accessible network,
– Stimulate awareness among young scientists about current and future research topics.
For this reason we have decided to explore the possibility to start up a network, the EGU-HS Young Hydrologist Society. The first meeting of the initiative is planned during the EGU General Assembly 2013 in Vienna. This meeting will be an interactive session where we want to discuss the possible contribution of this network, what its goals should be and how this should be organized in the most effective fashion. During the coming months we would like to gather a team of students and/or young scientists to further shape the initiative.
We would like to ask for your help by spreading this message to your students. Any graduate or postgraduate student interested in joining thus initiative is cordially invited to contact us.
More information on the initiative and the session at the EGU 2013 General Assembly can be found on http://www.younghs.com or requested by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any feedback by replying to this post or sending an email is highly appreciated.
