Dr Peter Viebahn, Co-Director of the Future Energy and Mobility Structures Division at the Wuppertal Institute, has been a member of The Integrated Assessment Society (TIAS) for nearly 15 years. Recently, he has been appointed to the Advisory Board of the non-profit organisation. Viebahn is looking forward to his role on the advisory board: "I will strengthen methods and issues of energy systems analysis, which has not been represented there up to now, but which are playing an increasingly important role in technology assessment".
TIAS is a not-for-profit-entity created to promote the community of inter-disciplinary and disciplinary scientists, analysts and practitioners who develop and use integrated assessment. The goals of the society are to nurture this community, to promote the development of integrated assessment and to encourage its wise application.
