Funding

The work of IIASA is made possible through the generous support of a range of organizations and individuals that share the institute’s commitment to independent, interdisciplinary research into pressing global problems.

Annual budget in 2015 was €22.1 million, of which 53% was from prestigious research funding agencies in 23 countries in Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, and Oceania. These diverse sources of income enable IIASA to perform research that is truly independent.

Additional funding comes from contracts, grants, and donations from governments, international organizations, academia, businesses, and individuals. Between 2010 and 2015 this additional funding reached €51 million. This is part of a funding portfolio of €250 million — the total awarded to external projects featuring collaborations between IIASA and its member countries.

Among this external funding are grants from the European Research Council (ERC) under the Advanced Researcher and Starting Grants funding mechanisms. 

In addition, special funds exist at IIASA to facilitate private donations. These include the IIASA Fund which helps further innovative scientific research and the Annual Fund which finances the participation of young scientists in the Young Scientists Summer Program.
