2007 IIASA Young Scientist Summer Programme

Application for the 2007 summer program is closed.
Program dates: June - August every year

IIASA' s annual 3-month Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP) offers research opportunities to talented young researchers whose interests correspond with IIASA' s ongoing research on issues of global environmental, economic and social change. Many of IIASA's National Member Organizations (NMOs) provide special grants to enable young scientists from their countries, or foreign students studying in their country, to participate in the program. From June through August accepted participants work within the Institute's Research Programs under the guidance of IIASA scientific staff. The YSSP provides a unique opportunity for participants to:

  • advance their research under the direct supervision of an experienced IIASA scientist, and at the same time contribute to IIASA' s ongoing scientific agenda;
  • broaden their research interests by working in IIASA' s interdisciplinary and international research environment;
  • build contacts with IIASA' s worldwide network of collaborators and with other YSSP fellows.
