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.
