Our Projects

High ILUC-Lot 1

The High Indirect Land Use Change (ILUC) Lot 1 project aims to quantify feedstock expansion onto land with high carbon stock, as input for the determination of high ILUC fuels. The project provides technical assistance to and is financed by the European Commission (DG-Energy).

Indirect Land Use Change, Forest loss, Biofuels

The LandSense Citizen Observatory aims to aggregate innovative EO technologies to empower communities to monitor and report on their environment.


A European-wide project engaging thousands of growers, scientists and others passionate about the land. We will discover together, using simple tools to better manage soil and grow food.


WeObserve is an H2020 Coordination and Support Action (CSA) which tackles three key challenges that Citizens Observatories (COs) face: awareness, acceptability and sustainability.

Adapt UHI

Urban heat islands and climate change are having an impact on smart urban development. ADAPT-UHI will help to identify targeted mitigation and adaptation measures.


FloodCitiSense aims at developing an urban pluvial flood early warning service for, but also by citizens and city authorities. This service will reduce the vulnerability of urban areas and citizens.

Copernicus Global Land Cover

The project aims to develop annual global land cover maps with a 100m resolution consistent over time, and has been tracking land cover changes since 2015.

CIMMYT collaboration

A collaborative project between IIASA and the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center in Mexico to support efforts of sustainable agricultural intensification with mobile crowdsourcing.

Zurich Flood Resilience

The Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance is a global alliance which aims to improve the resilience of communities around the globe to hazards associated with flooding.


Restore+ combines remote sensing with crowdsourced information on biophysical and social complexity of degraded land. The information will assess restoration options with multi-objective models.
