The AGU fall meeting will be one of the world’s largest virtual scientific conferences, and this year focuses on “Shaping the Future of Science?”

AGU 2020 sessions bring together the IIASA network by featuring the institute’s researchers, alumni, and collaborators. After celebrating their Centennial year, AGU turns their focus to the opportunities, discoveries, and solutions that will shape future generations and society.

At this year’s meeting IIASA Acting Water Program Director Yoshihide Wada will be presented with the James B. Macelwane Medal 2020. His groundbreaking research crosses disciplinary boundaries and looks at water management and systems modeling from the perspective of both the social sciences and natural sciences.

To arrange interviews with IIASA researchers please contact the IIASA Press Office

Below is a selection of IIASA related sessions and papers.
