Referring to the methodological dimension of the IIASA’s mandate, the ASA Program’s overall mission is to advance systems analysis by substantiating the integration of systems methods and applied research on problems of global relevance and universal importance. Central to this mission is the exploratory development of mathematical methods and analytical techniques to investigate complex systems undergoing global change with a focus on an integrated, interdisciplinary approach.
ASA’s research is organized around three mutually complementing and cross-fertilizing methodological research domains.

In accordance with its strategy, ASA is actively maintaining and expanding its network consisting of methodologists, applied scientists and decision-makers all over the world, and, based on it, develops international and interdisciplinary collaboration.
