I am delighted to present the IIASA Scientific Update 2013, which is intended to provide our many stakeholders with an overview of all IIASA research in the last calendar year. Director General and Chief Executive Officer of IIASA, Professor Dr. Pavel Kabat

Through the yearly scientific update, IIASA scientists and research programs provide IIASA's governing body, the Council, with a wide ranging and detailed account of their scientific activities over the previous 12 months. Due to the increasingly integrated nature of the analytical work carried out by different research areas and individual programs at IIASA, this year the Scientific Update is presented as an online interactive document. Using the images above, our research can be searched by Research area, showing our alignment to the 2011-2020 Strategic Plan, or by research relevant to one of our 21 National Member Organizations.
