IIASA Seminar

Exploring Future Collaboration with the Japanese Research Community

The International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) was founded in October 1972 as a non-governmental and international research organisation conducting policy-oriented research. After the easing of strained relationships between East and West in 1990s, IIASA started to focus its research on solving global scale problems mainly in the field of systems analysis, including collaborative research with Japanese research institutes.

Taking the opportunity of a visit to Japan by Dr. Pavel Kabat, Director General and Chief Executive Officer and Nebojasa Nakicenovic, Deputy Director General of IIASA, the Japan Committee for IIASA, together with the United Nations University Institute for Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS), organised a seminar to publicise IIASA’s recent research activities and to discuss the possibility to expand collaboration with the Japanese research community.
