July 3, 2017. School of Young Scientists "Methods for the integrated assessment of seismic hazard" has opened at the Shmidt Institute of Physics of the Earth (IPE RAS). The School was organized by GC RAS within the framework of the Russian Science Foundation (RNF) project No. 15-17-30020 "Application of system analysis for seismic hazard assessment in Russian regions".

The subject of the School is related to the recently developed new methods for assessing seismic hazard and integrating the results obtained with their help on the basis of methods of system analysis. The organizational committee of the event included experts of GC RAS, IPE RAS, Institute of Earthquake Prediction Theory and Mathematical Geophysics (IEPT RAS) and KSA Innovation Group.

A. A. Solovyev, Director of IEPT RAS, A. D. Gvishiani, Director of GC RAS, S. A. Tikhotsky, Director of IPE RAS, V. V Pogorelov, Scientific Secretary of IEPT RAS, V. A. Timofeeva, Director of KSA Innovation Group welcomed the School participants at the opening ceremony.

Leading scientists from GC RAS, IPP RAS, IEPT RAS, Geophysical Service of RAS, ICSU CODATA (France), OGS (Italy), Institute of Mathematics of the University of Potsdam (Germany), Institute of Geophysics and Engineering Seismology, NAS (Armenia), University of Trieste and other scientific institutions delivered lectures to young scientists from different cities of Russia, as well as from Armenia, Vietnam and South Africa.

July 11, 2018. Corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, V. A. Petrov, head of the Geoinformatics Laboratory of IGEM RAS, visited GC RAS. The purpose of the visit was to participate in a working meeting in which A. Gvishiani, Director of the Geophysical Center, A. Soloviev, Deputy Director for Science, A. Rybkina, Deputy Director for Development, and researcher A. Odintsova participated.

July 6-10, 2018. Scientists of the Laboratory of Geoinformatics and Geomagnetic Studies D. V. Peregudov and M. N. Dobrovolsky took part in the joint event – the 26th Extended European Cosmic Ray Symposium and 35th Russian Cosmic Ray Conference. The event was held at the Altai State University (Barnaul, Russia).

July 2-4, 2018. Leading engineer of the Laboratory of Geoinformatics and Geomagnetic Studies of GC RAS A. Grudnev visited "Klimovskaya" observatory (Arkhangelsk region, Klimovskaya village). The main goal of the expedition is to carry out routine preventive works aimed at maintaining the working capacity of geomagnetic equipment, including a scalar magnetometer.

July 4, 2018. Two international scientific organizations - the International Council for Science (ICSU) and the International Social Science Council (ISSC) have united in a new union - the International Science Council (ISC). GC RAS represents the interests of Russia in the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG), now part of the ISC. IUGG General Secretary Alik T. Ismail-Zade was elected as the chief secretary of the newly formed Council.
