Israel established the Israel Committee for IIASA, which is made up of representatives from Israeli universities, government ministries and the public —to represent the Israeli membership of IIASA. Together IIASA, the Israel Committee for IIASA, Israeli researchers and public planning authorities are developing international research collaborations to find solutions to the complex global challenges that impact Israel, the broader region and the world.
These include projects to support a long-term sustainable energy strategy for Israel, and a package of measures to reduce air pollution in the wider region, and scientific support for national socioeconomic strategic planning.
IIASA membership is also going to help develop the research base for systems analysis in Israel, through young scientists from Israel taking part in the IIASA Young Scientist Summer Program and the IIASA Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.
