The Academia Europaea is a European, non-governmental association established in 1988. The overarching objective of the Academia Europaea is to advance and propagate excellence in scholarship in the humanities, law, the economic, social, and political sciences, mathematics, medicine, and all branches of natural and technological sciences anywhere in the world for the public benefit and for the advancement of the education of the European public of all ages in these subjects.

Membership of this prestigious association is by invitation only with members comprising scientists and scholars who collectively aim to promote learning, education, and research. Invitations are made after peer group nomination, scrutiny, and confirmation as to the scholarship and eminence of the individual in their chosen field. Election is confirmed by the Council of the Academia.

Grubler’s research is highly interdisciplinary and combines systems thinking and mathematical modeling of complex systems with both long-run historical analysis and future scenario techniques. He has been a key contributor to major international assessments in the domain of sustainable development including the reports of The World in 2050 Initiative and the Global Energy Assessment published in 2012. He is one of the longest serving scientists for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), where, since 1994, he has served as lead and contributing author and review editor for five successive Assessment Reports as well as two Special Reports, contributing to all three Working Groups of the IPCC (climate science, impacts, and mitigation of climate change). He was also recognized for contributing to the award of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for the IPCC.

“Election to the Academia Europaea is a great honor, but I am especially delighted to see the type of interdisciplinary systems thinking and research, which is a hallmark of IIASA, recognized at the highest academic level in Europe,” says Grubler.

We extend our warmest congratulations to Arnulf Grubler on this prestigious appointment.
