April 18, 2018. From April 16 to 18, 2018, researchers of the Geophysical Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Deputy Director for Development Alena Igorevna Rybkina and programmer of the Innovation Projects Laboratory Sergey Vladimirovich Presnyakov visited Novosibirsk State University (NSU) to develop demonstration content and a programming interface for a new exposition of the Earth's history at the Geological-Geophysical Faculty of NSU.

The official opening of the exposition is planned for September 2018. Researchers of GC RAS will develop a specialized educational demonstration content and software interface for the touch screen on the basis of a unique demonstration complex with a spherical screen. This will be the first such complex with training material installed in the Russian Federation. The equipment operates on the basis of Orbus software, developed in GC RAS, and has no equivalent in the world.

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.
