Two PhD students, Beáta Farkas and Shashi Shekhar Shukla, were awarded IAG grants of 300€ each to attend the Youth Symposium “Geomorphology in Quaternary Research”,  held in Borucino (Poland). This event, supported by the IAG, was organised by the INQUA Peribaltic Group (PWG) and the Polish Association of Geomorphologists. Find the reports of the two awardees here:

Both emphasize the programme of the Symposium, which included several workshops and field trips. They also  praise the “breathtaking” beauty of the Symposium venue: Kashubian Lakeland. Attendees also had to present their research subjects, which was “very useful for everyone” according to Beáta, as they had “the opportunity to discuss every emerging question in detail”.  Shashi’s report particularly highlights that such an international event was more than welcome after the covid-19 pandemic. Overall, Beáta and Shashi describe a “wonderful experience“.
