India-related research in 2013 examined air pollution, clean energy, and food security among others. More


Indonesian membership of IIASA started in 2012 with productive collaborations emerging in 2013 on air pollution control, bio-energy and carbon capture and storage, and IIASA's new tropical flagship initiative. More


Activities between IIASA and Japanese researchers in 2013 advanced research methods and provided insights for policy in areas ranging from climate change to technology diffusion. More


Collaborations with Malaysian institutions were explored in the areas of palm oil and tropical deforestation in 2013. IIASA also welcomed back the Malaysian young scientist and winner of the Institute's Mikhalevic Award. More


In 2013 research collaborations between IIASA and Dutch researchers developed a range of research tools and methods in areas including agriculture, air pollution, and energy.  More


Research to improve the management of fisheries, forests, and air pollution were among the productive collaborations between IIASA and Norwegian researchers in 2013.  More


Collaborations with partners in Pakistan in 2013 explored air pollution, disaster risk management, and increasing the resilience of vulnerable populations. More

Republic of Korea

Water and economic growth were two of the key joint research areas between IIASA and Korean researchers in 2013. Productive scientific exchanges took place in 2013 with several Korean researchers spending periods working at IIASA. More

Russian Federation

Collaborations included exploring the challenges and opportunities of Eurasian economic integration, population aging in Russia, and advancing the methods of systems analysis. Productive scientific exchanges continued with many Russian researchers spending periods working at IIASA in 2013. More

South Africa

The Southern African Young Scientists Summer Program was the highlight of joint activities between IIASA and South Africa in 2013.  More


Swedish-related research in 2013 examined air pollution, bioenergy, and forest management among others. More


Research collaborations in 2013 between researchers at IIASA and the Ukraine explored integrated modeling of issues ranging from the food, energy, and water nexus to economic integration in Eurasia. More

United States of America

Research collaborations in 2013 between IIASA and the US were highly productive. Highlights included global model comparisons in the areas of energy and agriculture, innovative studies of aging, and input to the IPCC’s Fifth Assessment Report. More


On 1 November 2013, the Socialist Republic of Vietnam became IIASA's twenty-first member country with its leading scientific and technological agency, the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology (VAST), serving as National Member Organization (NMO). More
