International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA)
founded in 1972, the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) is an international research organization that conducts policy-oriented research into problems that are too large or too complex to be solved by a single country or academic discipline:
* problems like climate change that have a global reach and can be resolved only by international cooperative action, or
* problems of common concern to many countries that need to be addressed at the national level, such as energy security, population aging, and sustainable development.
Located in Austria near Vienna, IIASA is sponsored by its National Member Organizations in Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America. It is independent and completely unconstrained by political or national self-interest.
