Once a proposal has been formulated we encourage communication with the relevant program representatives. We suggest to look at the pdf version of the application form, frame the proposed research according to the questions there, and then send an introductory e-mail. This level of personal interaction is vital not only to discuss research ideas and ascertain their relevance to IIASA’s scientific agenda but it also allows much more realistic formulation of research plans and expectations on the part of both IIASA and the applicant.
