Research collaborations between IIASA and Germany have been highly productive throughout IIASA history.
Since 2010, this cooperation has involved over 70 German organizations and led to over 1,200 joint scientific publications and wide-ranging policy advice delivered via organizations such as the German Advisory Council on Global Change (WBGU).
Joint studies focus on the complex global systems that affect Germany, its economy, and its people. Research topics include transformation paths to a sustainable energy system, the impact of demographic change in Germany and optimizing strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. These activities are complemented by scientific exchange with over 1000 researchers visiting Germany from IIASA and over 760 researchers, advisors and diplomats visiting IIASA from Germany.
Reintroducing airships into the world’s transportation-mix could contribute to lowering the transport sector’s carbon emissions and can play a role in establishing a sustainable hydrogen-based economy. According to the authors of an IIASA-led study, these lighter-than-air aircraft could ultimately increase the feasibility of a 100% sustainable world. More
ON THE BLOG: YSSP alumnus Tobias Sieg explains how risk assessments considering uncertainties can substantially contribute to better risk management and consequently to the prevention of economic impacts.
POLICY BRIEF: There is growing recognition that using the properties of nature can help provide viable and cost-effective solutions to a broad range of societal challenges, including disaster risk reduction.
