What is IIASA?

The International Institute of Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) is an international research institute based near Vienna, Austria. A global leader in systems analysis, IIASA conducts policy-oriented, multidisciplinary research into challenges that are too large or complex to be solved by a single country or discipline. These challenges, which include climate change, energy security, and sustainable development, must be solved by international cooperation.
