Read about the activities of the Wittgenstein Centre (IIASA, ÖAW, University of Vienna) in the last five years

In the first decade of its existence, the Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Global Human Capital (IIASA, OeAW, University of Vienna) – in the following called WIC – has established itself as a global centre of excellence in demography, and as the centre of a distinct approach that can credibly now be called the “Vienna School” of demographic research; not a bricks-and-mortar institution, but an approach to demography with a clear geographic centre of gravity at the WIC. The WIC and its network of external collaborators comprise a leading producer of population research and analysis, known for global projections of the size and the composition of the human population. At the core of all WIC research has been policy relevance to resilience and sustainability in the context of global change.
