The International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) hosted a delegation from the Institute of Economic Research of the Slovak Academy of Sciences (SAS). The visit aimed at fostering collaboration and in-depth discussions on key economic models and research areas.

The delegation, led by SAS Institute of Economic Research Director Miroslav Štefánik, engaged in an extensive program designed to facilitate knowledge exchange and identify potential avenues for joint research initiatives. With a focus on economic research areas, this meeting served to discuss microsimulation models developed and used by both organizations and was a follow-up of prior introductory visit of IIASA representatives to the Slovak Academy of Sciences in January this year.  

IIASA Interim Deputy Director for Science, Wolfgang Lutz, and Head of Communications and External Relations, Barbara Kreissler, opened the meeting and handed over to SAS Institute of Economic Research Director, Miroslav Štefánik, who gave an overview of the models used at the institute with a focus on the Slovak Labour Market Model – SLAMM.
