There have been significant research collaborations between IIASA and Ukrainian research institutions. Recent research collaborations include projects focused on sustainable agriculture and food security; integrated management of food, energy, and water security; a sustainable energy future for Ukraine; and financial and natural disaster risk management.

Significant potential remains to grow the relationship between IIASA and Ukraine’s scholarly community. Opportunities for additional collaborations include developing bespoke Ukrainian version of IIASA global models, conducting international assessments in areas of Ukrainian strategic interests, partnering with Ukrainian institutions to win international research grants, and contributing to Ukrainian science diplomacy. Additionally, capacity building through greater scientific exchange via researching at or visiting IIASA, or taking part in IIASA programs for young scientists, will also be a priority for the partnership. This IIASA Info Sheet provides a summary of this relationship since 2008.
