Promoting Research on Quaternary Science

Established in 1928, INQUA is the representative body for Quaternary science world-wide. INQUA is dedicated to removing barriers and to fostering diversity and inclusivity by prioritising funding for early career and developing country researchers to enable their participation in the international scientific networks that INQUA supports. INQUA promotes – and operates according to – a philosophy of inclusivity, not discriminating against any individual on the basis of race, colour, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, genetics or disability. We encourage you to join INQUA through any of its Commissions, and contribute to the development of Quaternary science worldwide.
