For nearly forty years IIASA and Swedish researchers have collaborated on a wide range of research projects. Since 2010, research collaborations between IIASA and Sweden have focused on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, forest management, and the transition to a sustainable energy system in Sweden. Other projects have explored global issues that affect Sweden such as the future of the Arctic, ecological and evolutionary dynamics, and demographic changes.
Relations with policymakers include the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, the Swedish Energy Agency, and the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, and of Enterprise and Innovation. Since 2010, 8 postdoctoral research fellows from Sweden have developed their research skills at IIASA and 34 doctoral students have participated in IIASA programs for young scientists. Scientific exchange between IIASA and Sweden is bolstered by over 140 visits to IIASA by Swedes and over 215 visits by IIASA researchers to Sweden. All these activities have contributed to producing 377 peer‑ reviewed publications since 2010.
