As the leading agricultural institute in Europe, IIASA research partner and French-based INRA conducts research for high-quality foods, competitive and sustainable agriculture, and a sustainable environment. Research collaboration between IIASA and INRA on Livestock Production Scenarios has been highly productive – the aim is now to continue discussing society’s challenges on food, nutrition, agriculture and the environment, and to explore new joint research possibilities.
The meeting agenda included presentations on each IIASA research program, followed by roundtable discussions.

Paris remains one of Europe’s air pollution hotspots
Europe cannot achieve the WHO air quality guidelines without strictly controlling emissions from coal and wood burning for home heating, road traffic, and other sources such as industrial-scale factory farming, according to new IIASA research.
Under current legislation, air pollution hotspots will remain in major European cities such as Paris, Warsaw and Milan, and in Eastern Europe and Southern Poland, according to a new study published in the journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics by researchers at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) and colleagues around Europe.
IIASA’s Pavel Kabat (Director General and CEO) and Markus Amann (Program Director, Mitigation of Air Pollution and Greenhouse Gases) provide evidence to the French Senate inquiry committee on the economic and financial cost of air pollution in April 2015.
