Research collaborations between IIASA and the Netherlands have been highly productive ever since the Netherlands joined IIASA in 1977. Since 2008, this cooperation has involved 45 Dutch organizations and led to over 300 joint scientific publications and a wide range of advice to policymakers working in areas from agriculture to demography to energy.

Joint studies focus on the complex global systems that affect the Netherlands, its economy, and its people. Research topics include identifying measures that simultaneously tackle air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, analyzing the impact of demographic change in the Netherlands and optimizing strategies to increase flood resilience. Underpinning the joint work is systems analysis—one of the few research tools with the breadth and depth to explore these complex problems across multiple sectors, countries, and timeframes. IIASA’s collaborations are both applying these systems approaches and advancing the research methods especially in integrated assessment modeling.

Moreover, the next generation of system analysts are profiting from Dutch involvement in IIASA’s capacity building activities. This mutually beneficial relationship involves significant scientific exchange, with almost 360 visits from Dutch researchers, advisors, and diplomats to IIASA, and by IIASA researchers to events and institutions in the Netherlands. This IIASA Info Sheet provides a summary of interactions between IIASA and the Netherlands since 2008.
