Read how IIASA works with research partners across the globe to deliver world-class research.
Science and policy must work together to achieve a sustainable future for humanity.
Gerid Hager joined IIASA’s Ecosystems Services and Management Program (ESM) in June 2016, to work for the Systems Thinking for Transformation project (SYSTRANS), which aims to promote a systems view in educational practice through building on IIASA’s research approaches and tools and making them accessible to a wider, non-scientific audience. Additionally, she works on the GROW project, a citizen observatory for improving soil data and empowering growers, family farmers and gardeners through evidence-based practices. She has experience in participatory systems modeling with different stakeholder groups and has carried out research on systems thinking and learning, focusing on how tools and methods facilitate understanding about systems. In the area of Citizen Science, she is particularly interested in the research-as-learning perspective.
Ms. Hager brings many years of professional experience to IIASA. For seven years, she was Head of Education at the Ars Electronica Center in Linz, a public center placed at the interface of Art, Science, Technology and Society. Additionally, she worked as a lecturer in teacher training at the Art University Linz and as a high-school teacher. She holds a master’s degree in System Dynamics and a Master of Science in Business Administration from the University of Bergen (Norway), the New University of Lisbon (Portugal) and Radboud University in Nijmegen (The Netherlands) and a magister degree (univ.) in Art and Textile Design Education from the Art University in Linz.
