IALA distributes awards to members of IALA who are in the position of an early academic career and who provide a significant contribution to promoting collaboration in the interdisciplinary arena within Landscape Archaeology. For more information on the Travel Award, check the paragraph below. In the future, when IALA is growing, we expect to offer also awards for article processing charges for papers that present highly qualified interdisciplinary research related to Landscape Archaeology.
