Project Information


U.S. National Committee for the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (USNC/IIASA)


Project Scope:

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is the U.S. adhering body of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) and it maintains its relationship with IIASA through the U.S. National Member Organization (USNMO). Founded in 1972, IIASA conducts policy-oriented research into problems of a global nature that are too large or too complex to be solved by a single country or academic discipline.

IIASA is particularly known for its interdisciplinary research, combining natural and social sciences with integrated assessment techniques and advanced mathematical methodologies, with a goal of providing policy insight on issues of regional and global importance in the following nine areas:

  • Advanced Systems Analysis
  • Air Quality and Greenhouse Gases
  • Ecosystems Services and Management
  • Energy
  • Evolution and Ecology
  • Risk and Resilience
  • Transitions to New Technologies
  • Water 
  • World Population

Status: Current

PIN: PGA-BISO-18-P-45

RSO: Bailey, Kathie

Topic(s):

Conflict and Security Issues
Education
Energy and Energy Conservation
Policy for Science and Technology



Geographic Focus:

Science, engineering, and medicine perform an important role in meeting sustainability challenges on global, regional and local scales.  They advance the scientific understanding of the needs involved, and inform public understanding and policy decisions. The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) identify a way to achieve a better and more sustainable future. The 3-part webinar series, Sustainability and the SDGs: Promoting a Dynamic Science-Policy Interface, cohosted by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine (NASEM) and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), explores this theme from three perspectives.

Science Diplomacy will be moderated by Vaughan Turekian, Executive Director, Policy and Global Affairs at the NASEM. The speakers are Frances Colon, President of Jasperi Consulting, and Jan Marco Mueller, Science Advisor, European External Action Service.
