Since embership began a number of research collaborations have been developed with IIASA researchers, including projects focused on improving air quality, sustainable land and forest management, the changing energy landscape, and projecting demographics in Malaysia.
Beyond continuing these research collaborations, there is significant opportunity to grow the relationship
between IIASA and Malaysia’s scholarly community, through joint research projects, scientific exchange and collaborative capacity building activities. Opportunities for such activities will be facilitated through the forthcoming IIASA strategic plan 2021-2030 and new IIASA membership strategy, which the Academy of Sciences of Malaysia are helping to shape via their role on the IIASA governing council.
