New National Research Center at Tel Aviv University
From The Jerusalem Post
The Israel Ministry of Innovation, Science, and Technology (MOST), the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in Austria and Tel Aviv University (TAU) have announced the establishment of a new National Research Center for Applied Systems Analysis, to be known as the Israeli Applied Systems Analysis Center of Excellence or IASACE for short. IASACE will focus on the topic of sustainability and will cooperate with research institutes worldwide, especially with IIASA, aiming to connect research teams from different institutions, foster research innovation, and serve as a hub for science-based policymaking at the national and local government levels. Israel has recently renewed its IIASA membership for the next five years, and the institute will use IIASA’s existing integrated assessment models and research framework to localize it for the unique conditions of the Israeli economy.
