March 14, 2016 as a result of a long and productive scientific collaboration the Geophysical Center of Russian Academy of Sciences and the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco signed an agreement on cooperation.

The agreement was preceded by the exchange of visits of delegations from the Oceanographic Museum, headed by R. Calcagno in May 2015 to GC RAS ​​and from GC RAS ​​ to Monaco Oceanographic Institute and Museum in September 2015. The mutual visits have become part of the Year of Russia in Monaco.

The Oceanographic Museum was founded by Prince Albert I in 1889. It is the main scientific base of the Institute of Oceanography of Monaco, based in Paris. A famous researcher, legendary scientist and oceanographer Jacques-Yves Cousteau was director of the Museum from 1957 to 1988.

An important objective of the agreement is the joint development of new tools for global geophysical and oceanographic data vizualization.

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.
