Since joining IIASA, Malaysian researchers have started collaborating with IIASA researchers on projects focused on understanding and improving air quality, sustainable land management, the changing energy landscape, and projecting demographics in Malaysia.

Beyond continuing these new research collaborations, there is significant opportunity to grow the relationship between IIASA and Malaysia’s scholarly community. Opportunities for additional collaborations include developing bespoke Malaysian version of IIASA global models, conducting international assessments in areas of Malaysian strategic interests, partnering with Malaysian institutions to win international research grants, and contributing to Malaysian 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 expanding relationship since 2011.
