XXI Congress of the International Union for Quaternary Research (INQUA)

The INQUA Congress generally takes place every 4 years. The INQUA was nominally founded almost 100 years ago, in 1928 at a geological conference in Denmark. The organisers of the INQUA Rome 2023 Congress offer a very ambitious programme around the theme “Time for Change” emphasising the critical role of quaternary sciences in contributing to the knowledge we need to face current societal and climate challenges. The organisers of the INQUA Roma 2023 Congress not only offer a Congress with an attractive and inspiring scientific programme, they organise the meeting in a unique venue; at the campus of the Sapienza University of Rome, an architectural masterpiece in the centre of Rome.
