Summary

The Imperial Barrel Award (IBA) recognizes the highest academic achievement of exploration geoscience, and in that respect, this year was no different. What was different about this year’s IBA competition is that – due to a global pandemic – the teams had to meet, work, practice and deliver their presentations virtually. Also for the first time, the IBA awards ceremony was held completely online. We invite you to experience the Imperial Barrel Award ceremony on this video. Congratulations to all the participating teams, their advisers and mentors, volunteers, coordinators and co-chairs, and thank you to all the sponsors, without whom this year’s IBA would not have been possible. Welcome to the Awards Presentation of the 2020 Imperial Barrel Award!
