Research collaborations between IIASA and India stretch back to the 1970s, but the relationship has recently become far more productive after India became a national member of IIASA in 2007 through TIFAC.

Multiple research collaborations with partners in India as diverse as the National Institute of Hydrology (NIH) and The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) have brought new insights to the challenges that India faces. In particular, IIASA’s applied systems analysis has brought a global perspective, interdisciplinary research expertise, and policy relevance to issues ranging from the future of India’s energy system to increasing the country’s food production.

Greater collaboration with IIASA has also brought Indian researchers into contact with the Institute's global network of around 2,500 active researchers and 300 research partners. These  often informal  connections, along with the official projects of the India-IIASA programme have resulted in over 160 joint publications since 2008. IIASA's academic training programs have also been successfully building the next generation of systems analysts in India.
