Research collaborations between IIASA and the People’s Republic of China (China) have been highly productive since China became a national member of IIASA in 2002 through the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC).

Since 2010, research collaborations between IIASA and China have focused on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, sustainable agriculture, water resources, disaster preparedness, demography, and the transition to a sustainable energy system in China. Underpinning the joint work is systems analysis – one of the few research tools with the breadth and depth to explore these complex problems across multiple sectors, countries, and timeframes. Moreover, the next generation of systems analysts are profiting from Chinese involvement in IIASA capacity building activities. Since 2010, 4 postdoctoral research fellows from China have developed their research skills at IIASA and 68 doctoral students have participated in IIASA programs for young scientists. Scientific exchange between IIASA and China is bolstered by over 170 visits to IIASA and over 290 visits by IIASA researchers to China. All these activities have contributed to producing over 360 peer  reviewed publications since 2010. This Info Sheet summarizes activities between IIASA and China since 2010.
