IIASA - International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis

The International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) is an international, interdisciplinary research institute located in Laxenburg in Austria, which also facilitates intergovernmental dialogue through science and scientists. It produces information to support international and national decision-making and to promote trade.

The institute studies global problems that are either too widespread or too complex for a single country or scientific discipline to solve – problems that have a global dimension (such as global warming) and problems that are shared by a large number of countries in the world (such as energy security). The IIASA compiles and maintains a large number of databases and develops modelling tools for using them effectively.

The Academy of Finland sponsors the participation of Finnish students and students enrolled in Finnish universities and research centres in the IIASA’s Young Scientists Summer Programme (YSSP) and certain other events hosted by the IIASA. The Academy represents Finland’s interests in the IIASA.
