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’s 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. And joint projects have brought Chinese researchers into contact with the Institute’s global network of around 2,500 active researchers and 600 research partners. These formal and informal connections, including projects initiated by IIASA and NSFC, have resulted in over 300 joint publications since 2008. IIASA’s academic training programs have also been successfully building the next generation of systems analysts in China. This IIASA Info Sheet provides a summary of this growing and mutually beneficial relationship since 2008.
