In 2019 a new IAG (International Association of Geomorphologists) Working Group on “Connectivity in Geomorphology” has been established. In bringing together the experience and expertise of researchers in the emerging field of connectivity in geomorphology, this IAG-WG aims to enable the transitions a) from parallel projects to concerted research (incl. a transdisciplinary framework with strong linkages to practitioners/applied aspects, e.g. management of water and sediment in catchments), b) from a plethora of case studies to more generic, comparable research, c) from a multiplicity of definitions, concepts and methodological approaches to coordinated, theory-guided research activity along agreed lines, which will provide both immediate benefit for existing projects and a springboard for the development of future research projects. The overarching aim of this WG is to form an international network of Connectivity scientists, to share expertise and develop a consensus on the definition and scientific agenda regarding the emerging field of connectivity in geomorphology. With this poster presentation we would like to communicate our mission statement to the EGU audience, further discussing about recent and future activities of the Working Group
