The 6th IAHR Congress Conference

Although the word “coronavirus” was the biggest concern in 2020, our environment still deserved even greater attention. According to one UN study, 1.5 million people died from the epidemic within the pandemic’s year, while 9 million died from contaminated water and air. That’s a six-fold higher figure. I drew attention to this aspect at the opening of the 6th IAHR Europe Congress, which took place under the theme of “Hydro-environment research and engineering: No frames, no borders.”

This is the sixth European meeting of this global institution, but the first time that it happened in Poland. At the beginning of the arrangements in 2019, we agreed to the presence of several hundred delegates in Warsaw. However, the first quarter of 2020 showed that this will not be possible. Therefore, the organizers of the meeting – Professors Tomasz Okruszko and Paweł Rowiński – wanted to make spectators feel welcome despite the physical distances. I think it’s safe to say that we really did the job well!

The conference was organized in a non-standard, innovative way and required a non-standard way of conducting. Mr. Maciej perfectly found himself in this role, introducing a fantastic, creative atmosphere, but at the same time allowing the participants of the meeting to feel fully relaxed. But my great chapeau bass, because the Congress - in the opinion of many people from around the world - turned out to be a great success.
