IIASA – International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (Austria)

Through its research programs and initiatives, the institute conducts policy-oriented research into issues that are too large or complex to be solved by a single country or academic discipline. This includes pressing concerns that affect the future of all of humanity, such as climate change, energy security, population aging, and sustainable development. The results of IIASA research and the expertise of its researchers are made available  to  policymakers  in  countries  around  the  world  to  help  them  produce  effective,  science-based policies that will enable them to face these challenges. 

IIASA will provide mathematical models and IT decision support tools for multi-criteria decision analysis. Here IIASA has extensive experience in analysing stakeholders’ preferences and in identification criteria rankings and policy trade-offs which were gained in a number of national and EU projects such as FP7 Matrix project  or  MENA-Select  supported  by  the  Federal  Ministry  for  Economic  Cooperation  and Development of Germany.

Advanced  Systems  Analysis  (ASA)  programs’  mission  is  to  develop,  test,  and  make  available  new quantitative and qualitative methods from areas including mathematics, statistics, operations research, and management science for addressing problems arising in the policy analysis of complex socio-environmental systems.  Thereby,  ASA’s  activities  advance  IIASA’s  ability  to  conduct  research  to  improve  human  and societal  well-being,  as  well  as  environmental  quality  by  allowing  for  solving  problems  that  cannot  be addressed by existing tools and by enabling solving problems more efficiently. One of the main fields of research carried by the Advanced Systems Analysis (ASA) program is participatory governance, innovation policy, technology transfer and compromise oriented policy solutions. 

In the CORE project, IIASA:

  • leads WP7;
  • is involved in manyWPs;
  • coordinates task 7.4.
