Since joining IIASA, Indonesian researchers have started collaborating with IIASA researchers on projects
focused on sustainable land management, the changing energy landscape, increasing Indonesia’s resilience
to natural disasters, and improving air quality. Beyond continuing these new research collaborations, there is
significant opportunity to grow the relationship between IIASA and Indonesia’s scholarly community.

Opportunities for additional collaborations including developing bespoke Indonesian version of IIASA global models, conducting international assessments in areas of Indonesian strategic interests, partnering with Indonesian institutions to win international research grants, and contributing to Indonesian science diplomacy. Moreover, IIASA hosted a session on applied systems analysis as part of the ninth ASEAN Science and Technology Week in Indonesia in 2014.

Future collaborations could prioritize additional capacity building programs through greater scientific exchange via researching at or visiting IIASA or taking part in IIASA program for young scientists. This IIASA Info Sheet provides a summary of this expanding relationship since 2012.
