IGA – International Institute of Alpine Cooperative Research

The International Institute of Alpine Cooperative Research is an association under association law, registered with the competent association authority (currently the federal police headquarters in Innsbruck). Alpine cooperatives can look back on a more than 100-year success story. The IGA Association sees itself as a research institute that has its main focus in particular, but not exclusively, on Alpine countries. Therefore, all of our current partners originate from the Alpine region.
