The International Input-Output Association (IIOA) is a non-profit, scientific organisation founded in 1988. The IIOA today is a thriving, growing and influential organisation with over 630 members spanning 59 countries.

The objective of the IIOA is the advancement of knowledge in the field of Input-Output data compilation and analysis, including improvements in basic data, theoretical insights and modelling, and applications - traditional and novel - of Input-Output techniques. The IIOA delivers its core objectives by supporting young scholars, widening the awareness of the organisation, providing exchange of experience through our global annual IIOA Conference.

The global IIOA community brings together both producers (e.g. national statistical offices) of the statistics needed and the wide range of users, analysts and policy makers to advance knowledge on energy, environment, international trade, financial flows, price and general equilibrium analysis, ecological sustainability and well-being.

We welcome you to browse through the IIOA webpages, contact one of our Council Members, and to attend our annual conferences to learn more of the IIOA and its activities.

Forthcoming webinar

Presenter: Dr. Josef, Richter, Dr. Bert Steenge and Dr. Rossella Bardazzi
Title of presentation: Towards an IO (Historical) Archive

Date and time: Tue, 04-Jun-2024 15:00(CET)
Start in 15 days, 13 hours, 14 minutes

We are excited to welcome you to the upcoming 15th IIOA Webinar scheduled for Tuesday, June 4th, 2024, from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM CET. We would like to extend our gratitude to Dr. Josef Richter, Dr. Bert Steenge, and Dr. Rossella Bardazzi for hosting this webinar entitled “Towards an IO (Historical) Archive”.


Dr. Josef Richter, now retired, spent most of his professional life in IO - statistics and empirical IO - analysis. Thanks to the help of Clopper Almon and a stay at the University of Maryland, the first IO model of the INFORUM type for Austria has already been created 1972. Josef had teaching obligations at the Universities of Innsbruck and Linz from 1983 onwards. His work has focused mainly on the empirical foundation of IO - analysis and on the problematic relationship between the producers of data and empirical economists. He has contributed to many IIOA conferences; his publications cover very different applications of input-output techniques. Josef was a founding member of the International Input-Output Association and was its first treasurer, serving from 1988 to 2006.

Dr. Bert Steenge studied at the University of Groningen, Faculty of Economics, specializing in Economics/Econometrics. He defended his PhD thesis in 1980. In 1986 he became Full Professor of Economics at the University of Twente, Faculty of Public Administration and Public Policy. In 2007 he returned to his ‘Alma Mater’, the University of Groningen, as emeritus. Bert has had a life-long interest in I-O modelling because of its versatility and deep roots, which originated in pre-revolutionary France and now cover a wide range of topics. His work has focused mainly on the theoretical side of topics in I-O, and he has contributed to many IIOA conferences, as well as being involved in related activities. His publications cover several fields and subfields of present-day I-O modelling. Bert served as a Council member from 2007 to 2015.

Dr. Rossella Bardazzi is associate professor of economics at the University of Florence, Italy. She has devoted her research activity to the theoretical and empirical analysis of macroeconometric and microsimulation models. She belongs to the international research network of macroeconometric models INFORUM (Interindustry Forecasting at the University of Maryland) and has contributed to the development of the Italian Multisectoral model (INTIMO). Her research interests include the development of multisectoral and microsimulation models, bilateral trade models, demand systems for household consumption, energy demand of enterprises and households. Rossella has served as a council member of the International Input-output Association (IIOA) from 2018 to 2023.

Abstract: The project to create an IO (historical) Archive was initiated to preserve relevant material on the early stages of IO analysis that would otherwise be lost forever, and to make these documents easily accessible to the IIOA membership. In this context, IO should be seen in a wider sense to include related areas such as regional economics, environmental economics, mathematical economics, and history of economic thought, as well as various satellite accounts extending the IO framework.

The aim of this webinar is to present the guiding principles and features of the project, and to report what has been achieved. The main milestones so far have been the creation of an efficient infrastructure (a web database) to make the material available to IIOA members, and the integration of more than 600 documents into this system. At the moment, many of the contributions to the IO conferences of 1971 to 1995 are already accessible. The focus of the webinar will be on the presentation of how the information already available in the Archive can be utilised. Various search options will be shown, and we will show how these documents can be accessed. The final part of the webinar will be devoted to outline possible next steps.
