For nearly forty years IIASA and Swedish researchers have collaborated on a wide range of research projects focusing on on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, forest management, and the transition to a sustainable energy system in Sweden. Other projects have explored global issues that affect Sweden such as the future of the Arctic, ecological and evolutionary dynamics, and demographic changes.

Relations with policymakers include the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, the Swedish Energy Agency, and the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, and of Enterprise and Innovation
