2019 saw a continuation of the institute’s fiscal strategy of reserve replenishment, with net assets increasing by 16% to €7.7million. Total income grew by 2% from €22.7 million in 2018 to €23.1 million in 2019, with total expenditure declining marginally from €22.6 million to €22.0 million. At €18.2 million, almost 83% of the institute’s total spending in 2019 was on research and scientific services, while it was also possible to consolidate spending on administration services and reduce the cost of institute governance. IIASA operated well within its financial means in 2019, with the positive change in net assets serving to strengthen fiscal reserves and begin to prepare the institute financially for its upcoming 50th Anniversary in 2022.
The institute’s annual budget in 2019 was €23.1 million, of which over 49% was from research funding agencies in member countries in Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Europe. These diverse sources of income enable IIASA to perform research that is truly independent. The institute receives additional funding from contracts, grants, and donations from governments, international organizations, academia, businesses, and individuals. Between 2018 and 2019 this additional funding increased by 10% from €10.5 million to €11.6 million.
In 2019 IIASA membership contributions were provided by the following agencies:
