Since 2008, IIASA has intensified its collaborations with Finland resulting in new research projects, significant interaction with Finnish policymakers, and growing scientific exchange through people. New projects have included an integrative assessment of plausible futures of the Arctic, a study of Finland’s resilience to a range of global shocks, structural change in the Finnish economy, and how to make more efficient use of Finland’s bioenergy resources. Interactions have taken place between IIASA researchers and the Prime Minister’s Office, a range of ministries from Defence to the Environment, as well as with Finnish corporations. Knowledge transfer between IIASA and Finland is also facilitated through multiple exchanges with Finnish researchers working at or visiting IIASA, and IIASA researchers visiting and attending events in Finland. The scientific output from all these activities is highly productive with 140 joint publications since 2008. This IIASA Info Sheet provides a summary of this expanding and mutually beneficial relationship since 2008.
