Explicit consideration is given to:
The program’s research integrates tightly with the natural, environmental, population, and systems science frameworks that IIASA is leading on, thus providing the multi-disciplinary approach needed for an understanding of the transition to sustainable, fair, and resilient economies. The program aims to act as an international hub for high-level external economic expertise as well as expertise from other relevant sciences (e.g., sociology, psychology, environmental and natural sciences, mathematics) to engage in capacity building, and to establish links with leading international research and policy institutions to leverage internal resources.
The EF program started on 1 January 2021 and its research agenda is still being developed. While the program’s current research focuses on the two themes below, as well as topical research pertaining to economic aspects of COVID-19, the program is in the process of developing a research agenda for two additional themes on the Governance of Transitions (GT) and Economic Development and Wellbeing in a Finite and Interlinked World (EFW). Aspects of these themes are already present in the research undertaken under the two existing research themes where relevant.
