CALL for GRANTS for the European Meeting of Young Geomorphologists (Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, France, 9-11 June 2023)

The International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG) offers 2 travel grants of 300 (three-hundred) Euros to support the participation of two Young Geomorphologists* worldwide (except those based in France, Switzerland and Italy) who are willing to take part in the European Meeting of Young Geomorphologists (Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, France, 9–11 June 2023). The preference will be given to applicants for countries without young geomorphologists groups. The meeting is organised by the Young Geomorphologists of the Swiss, French and Italian Geomorphological Societies under the auspices of the IAG.
The meeting will gather young researchers interested in geomorphology. The event will focus on regional-scale studies, including the interactions between climate change, human societies and landscape evolution in fluvial, periglacial and glacial environments. The program of the meeting involves: i) a conference, where the participants will present their research, and ii) a two-days excursion in Chamonix Valley and Veny Valley to discover the fluvial and periglacial geomorphology in alpine environments.
