NMOs have direct access to the expertise, networks, products, and internationally acclaimed databases and models, developed by IIASA, as well as preferential employment status within the Institute.
NMOs benefit from IIASA's capacity building programs, aimed at nurturing expertise in the young and developing scientific community, in particular IIASA's Young Scientists Summer Program and Postdoctoral Program focus primarily on students from NMO countries.
Knowledge sharing workshops, conferences, and events, aimed at industry, government, and/or the scientific community, are held in NMO countries and at IIASA's facilities in Laxenburg, Austria, on a regular basis. All of the above-mentioned activities aim to enhance expertise in complex systems science and application within the global scientific and policy communities, with particular attention to the needs of NMOs and their countries.
Importantly, many of the issues of global change that IIASA focuses on are transnational, or global in nature. They are often controversial and politically sensitive. IIASA provides a politically neutral environment in which research can be conducted, free of national or political interference.
Membership of IIASA is generally facilitated by, and managed through, the scientific academies or 'one professional institution' within a country. For more information on NMOs or how your organization can work with IIASA please contact us.
Details about the establishment and governance of IIASA can be found in the IIASA Charter.
