Find more program tips for Early Career Scientists in hydrology check out the Young Hydrological Society, and for hydrological forecasting HEPEX. Finally, make the best out of the new “networking time” of 18-19h. It is a longer break between posters, orals and PICO and medal lectures, short courses and special events. Use this time to meet colleagues, visit posters you may have missed during the day, visit the exhibition and the EGU booth, or see EGU artists in residence at work in Foyer D.
