Current collaborations between IIASA and the UK are enhancing UK expertise in developing and applying systems analysis, especially integrated assessment models. Establishing multinational and multidisciplinary teams of researchers is a key building block in IIASA work and many productive partnerships exist between IIASA and UK researchers.

These activities are complemented by scientific exchange with over 550 researchers visiting the UK from IIASA and over 370 researchers, advisors and diplomats visiting IIASA from the UK, over the same period. Beyond continuing these research collaborations, there is significant opportunity to grow the relationship between IIASA and the UK scholarly community, through joint research projects, scientific exchange and collaborative capacity building activities.
