Professor Palokangas visited IIASA in 2005 for a workshop on economic growth. He has been the organizer of two IIASA conferences: "Applications of Dynamic Systems to Economic Growth with Environment" in 2008 and "Green Growth and Sustainable Development" in 2011. He subsequently returns to the Institute once a year as an academic visitor. His main interests associated with IIASA focus on optimal control theory and differential games with applications to research and development (R&D), economic growth and environmental economics.
