About iiasa

The International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), an international research organization near Vienna, Austria, conducts inter-disciplinary scientific studies on environmental, economic, technological and social issues in the context of global change. IIASA researchers utilize state-of-the-art methodology and analytical approaches in providing non-political and unbiased perspectives to decision-makers and the scientific community.


 

About the USNmo

The U.S. National Member Organization for IIASA (USNMO/IIASA) is charged with actively participating in the governance of the Institute through participation on the IIASA Council and direct interaction with the Directorate and guides the IIASA research program in ways that will maintain its quality and relevance to U.S. research and policy concerns.  The national committee is also tasked with increasing participation in and awareness of IIASA by Americans in academia, government, industry, and non-governmental organizations as a liaison to the U.S. science, technology and policy communities.  The USNMO/IIASA represents the National Academy of Sciences as a National Member Organization to IIASA.
