Wodak Room, IIASA


With the aim to discuss a possible inter-institutional collaboration, IIASA and The International Academy for Systems and Cybernetic Sciences (IASCYS) organise a joint workshop dedicated to identifying common interests in the following areas: Participatory Science, Risks and Societies and Sustainability.

The International Academy for Systems and Cybernetic Sciences (IASCYS) defines its role and function in the following way: While the traditional disciplines of science focus on their selected parts of the given reality of life and consider them from their more or less narrowly selected viewpoints, the systems and cybernetics theories and practices deal with a world-view of holism.

Likewise, IIASA has developed a profile of research programs which jointly carry out research into the critical issues of global environmental, economic, technological, and social change that we face in the twenty-first century. The integrated approach of systems analysis applied by IIASA allows investigation at the nexus of global challenges, enabling synergies and trade-offs among potential solutions to be considered and implemented.

Given that both organizations build on and promote systems thinking and a holistic perspective, this meeting was organized to explore possibilities of collaboration.
