The Korea Environment Institute (KEI) co-organized a workshop with the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) to explore new opportunities for research collaboration. The workshop took place in Vienna, Austria, at the IIASA headquarters on April 25. Initiated to further expand collaboration as part of KEI’s Global Leading Research Programs (GLRPs), the event served as an opportunity to discuss how KEI’s research topics align with various research and analysis projects conducted by IIASA. Particular attention was given to aligning current research projects of the Climate and Air Quality Research Group at KEI. 


During the workshop, the planning of collaborative research projects covering topics such as carbon neutrality, climate change, and energy transition was thoroughly discussed. These projects include both global and regional (local) approaches to diverse climate-related issues. Discussions on potential research collaboration included devising plans for efficient energy supply and boosting the circular economy to achieve net-zero emissions, assessing the expected impact of Asia’s integrated environment and climate policy on air quality and health, developing low energy demand scenarios utilizing global Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) models, and formulating strategies for the integrated management of local governments’ land and environmental plans to achieve carbon neutrality. 


Furthermore, the potential for funding research through the formation of a KEI-IIASA consortium, as well as personnel exchange and networking efforts, was discussed.
