Research collaborations between IIASA and the United States of America (US) have been highly productive
ever since the institute was founded in 1972. The IIASA–US relationship is central to the Institute and consequently IIASA participates in more activities related to the US than any of its other member countries.
The US National Member Organization is the National Academy of Sciences, which promotes cooperation with American scientists, research institutions, and government agencies. The membership contribution is supported by the National Science Foundation.
