For four decades IIASA has conducted independent and interdisciplinary research to find solutions to a host of scientific, social, and policy problems.
IIASA's impact has ranged from pioneering new approaches in economics with implications for technology sector innovations to underpinning global environmental treaties to helping countries find paths to sustainable development.
The IIASA Fund offers different avenues to support IIASA's mission. The support of our donors allows us to continue this important work and provides the opportunities for endeavors outside the Institute's budget.
"IIASA has long been the path-breaker in integrated systems analysis ... It's always been about how to feed the planet or where are the energy resources going to come from by mapping a global-scale set of challenges and a global-scale set of projections and forcing a look - which almost no normal scientific enterprise does - at the interface between the physical environment and the human systems."
