At the occasion of the World Congress, the YP Award is given for outstanding technical paper and presentation authored and presented by a Young Professional at the PIANC World Congress. The 2018 World Congress in Panama YP Award attracted over 30 applicants eligible for the YP Award! The YP-Com has gone through a careful process evaluating and ranking all submitted papers and presentations held in Panama. This has finally resulted in the long-expected winner of the World Congress YP Award 2018, as well as a second and third place.
