The International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) is an independent scientific institute that studies problems that are too large or too complex to be solved by a single country or academic discipline. IIASA research covers broad areas of energy and climate, food and water, and poverty and equity. More information.
Press releases and events specifically for the media. For more updates on IIASA research, see IIASA News.
