IIASA is an international research institute based in Laxenburg near Vienna. Its main focus is on interdisciplinary research in the fields of environment, economy, technology and population with regard to the human dimension of global change. IIASA was founded on the initiative of the United States of America and the Soviet Union during the Cold War as a bridge between scientists from East and West. It was one of the first partners of the Plattform Österreich forscht and is a strong player in the international Citizen Science Community. Several citizen science projects of IIASA can be found on Österreich forscht. We are therefore all the more pleased that IIASA will continue to be a reliable and competent partner in the Citizen Science Network Austria in the future.
