During the visit, the members of the delegation met with IIASA Programs to learn more about their work and to discuss exploring potential joint areas of collaboration, ranging from Energy and Air Pollution to Ecology and Water Management.
The visit also focused on increasing capacity building activities between IIASA and Peking University, specifically in relation to the IIASA Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP) and the IIASA Postdoctoral Program.
About Peking University
Founded in 1898, Peking University was originally known as the Imperial University of Peking. It was the first national university covering comprehensive disciplines in China, and has been a leading institution of higher education in China since its establishment.
The University Faculty consists of 53 members of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), 7 members of the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE), and 14 members of the Third World Academy of Sciences (TWAS). The university combines research on important scientific subjects, striving not only for improvements in teaching and research work, but also for the promotion of interaction and mutual promotion among various disciplines.

About IIASA and China
Research collaborations between IIASA and the People’s Republic of China (China) have been highly productive since China became a national member of IIASA in 2002 through the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC).
Multiple research collaborations with partners ranging from universities to institutions of the Chinese Academy of Sciences to governmental bodies have brought new insights to the challenges that China faces. In particular, IIASA applied systems analysis has brought a global perspective and interdisciplinary research expertise to Chinese agricultural policy, demography, energy scenarios, air pollution, and risk mitigation among others. Greater collaboration with IIASA has also contributed to China’s research base through enhancing modeling knowledge and skills.
