In 2017, IIASA continued its strategy of increasing investment in its research activities that began in 2011. This saw expenditure on research and scientific services grow by €1.4 million from just under €16 million in 2016, to €17.4 million in 2017. Since 2011 there has been an increase of 41% in research and scientific services. In 2017, the expected income, mainly from IIASA membership contributions, did not materialize as budgeted, hence IIASA had to draw on its financial reserves. After the closure of 2017, the reserves however remain at a strategic level of circa 25% of the annual budget.
The institute receives additional funding from contracts, grants, and donations from governments, international organizations, academia, businesses, and individuals. Between 2012 and 2017, this additional funding amounted to €52 million. This is part of a funding portfolio of €265 million — the total awarded to external projects featuring collaborations between IIASA and its member countries.
The institute’s annual budget in 2017 was €21 million, of which 58% was from research funding agencies in member countries in Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, and Oceania. These diverse sources of income enable IIASA to perform research that is truly independent.
In 2017 IIASA membership contributions were provided by the following agencies:
