The National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (NASU) is the highest research body in Ukraine and carries out research in various disciplines for the technological, socio-economic and cultural advancement of the nation.

There have been significant research collaborations between IIASA and Ukrainian research institutions. Recent research collaborations include projects focused on sustainable agriculture and food security; integrated management of food, energy, and water security; a sustainable energy future for Ukraine; and financial and natural disaster risk management.

Research highlights

Education and the sustainable development agenda

Robust food, energy, water, and land management

Economic development and the food-water-energy-environment nexus

Looking ahead: Future opportunities in the greater Eurasian space

Significant potential remains to grow the relationship between IIASA and Ukraine’s scholarly community. Opportunities for additional collaborations include developing bespoke Ukrainian version of IIASA global models, conducting international assessments in areas of Ukrainian strategic interests, partnering with Ukrainian institutions to win international research grants, and contributing to Ukrainian science diplomacy. Additionally, capacity building through greater scientific exchange via researching at or visiting IIASA, or taking part in IIASA programs for young scientists, will also be a priority for the partnership.
