In recent years, representatives of research institutions in Jordan, officially the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, have explored ways to develop mutually beneficial collaborations between researchers at IIASA and in Jordan. With this goal, Memorandums of Understanding were signed between IIASA and the Higher Council of Science and Technology of Jordan in 2015 and the Royal Scientific Society of Jordan in 2017.
Resulting activities include:
As a prospective member, the Royal Scientific Society of Jordan and IIASA will jointly explore the value of full membership of IIASA between June 2020 and June 2022. Specifically, they will jointly identify: (1) areas of mutual research interest that will benefit both Jordan, the Middle East, and IIASA; (2) mechanisms that will facilitate research collaborative activities; and (3) ways to overcome any barriers to research collaboration.
