International Institute for Applied System Analysis (IIASA)

IIASA has been a member since 1987.

The International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) is a research institution located just outside Vienna, Austria, supported by National Member Organizations in twenty nations from Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Oceania, engaged in scientific research aimed at providing science-based insight on complex systems problems of regional and global importance.

Since 1972, IIASA has contributed to finding solutions to complex global problems by conducting independent and interdisciplinary systems analysis across a wide spectrum of environmental, social, technological, and economic issues. The global transformations in economic and political power of the twenty-first century have raised issues that are increasingly intertwined with critical environmental challenges; IIASA has reaffirmed its mission to provide insights and guidance to decision makers worldwide through analysis and assessments to help identify and chart sustainable pathways through these complex and interlinked global issues.

Independent and nongovernmental, IIASA cooperates with a global network of research and policy organizations, including ISC, that share its interest in finding solutions to global problems.
