Institute of Systems Analysis of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IZA RAHN)


Institute of Systems Analysis of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IZA RAHN) - the unique independent research, expert and consultative organization which is initially conceived, created and developing as the multidisciplinary research team integrating specialists in the field of mathematics and economy, management and information technologies, biology and ecology, sociology and philosophy. Using unique creative opportunities and forms of cooperation, specialists of different areas of knowledge execute the basic theoretical researches and applied developments having the main goal development of the theory and tools of systems analysis at Institute.

Information science and management Federal research center RAS




For 2015 scientific personnel of Institute is made by authoritative high-class specialists among whom there are four full members of RAS, three corresponding members of RAS, about 50 doctors and over 100 candidates physical and mathematical, technical, economic, philosophical, sociological, geographical and jurisprudence.

For development of specific problems, project implementation and programs multidisciplinary collectives with participation of staff of different laboratories are created.

For 2015:

The research supervisor IZA RAHN is the academician of RAS Stanislav Vasilyevich Yemelyanov.

The director IZA RAHN is the corresponding member of RAS Popkov Yury Solomonovich

The scientific secretary – to. t. - m of N Sergey Nikolaevich Osipov.


The institute was created in 1976 as the All-Union Research Institute of System Researches (AURISR) under the auspices of the State committee of Council of Ministers of the USSR on science and technology and Academy of Sciences of the USSR.

Founders of Institute D.M. Gvishiani's academicians (the first director of Institute from 1976 to 1992) and S.V. Yemelyanov (the director of Institute in 1992 - 2002, and nowadays his research supervisor) created VNIISI as the unique scientific organization using system methodology for studying of the major and particularly complex problems connected with intensive mastering of scientific and technical achievements and caused by global processes.

The basis of Institute was formed by three groups of scientists: from Institute of the problems of management of Academy of Sciences of the USSR under the leadership of S.V. Yemelyanov which were engaged in development and the annex of cybernetic methods to problems of management of the technical and organizational systems; from the Central economic-mathematical institute of Academy of Sciences of the USSR under the leadership of S.S. Shatalin, working on questions of social and economic efficiency; from Institute of the USA and Canada of Academy of Sciences of the USSR under the leadership of B.Z. Milner developing organizational methods of management in economy. Further the collectives which were engaged in development of philosophical concepts of system researches, science of science, global forecasting, ecological modeling, sociology of the organizations joined them.

In 1992. The institute received the present name - Institute of Systems Analysis of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

According to the order of the Federal Agency for Scientific Organizations (FASO) of December 31, 2014. The institute of systems analysis of RAS, along with Institute of problems of information science of RAS (IPI RAS) and Computer center of RAS of A.A. Dorodnitsyn, was a part of again formed Federal research center "Information Science and Management" of the Russian Academy of Sciences intended to be engaged in basic and application studies in the field of mathematics, mathematical modeling, information science, information technologies.

Theoretical researches of Institute cover a broad spectrum of fundamental problems of systems analysis and information technologies, the including problems of modeling of difficult objects, artificial intelligence and the theory of decision making; systems analysis of processes of macroeconomic, territorial and production development, administration and economic board; forecasting of global changes of the environment and climate; managements of health of the population.
