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.

September 11, 2017. Director of GC RAS Academician Alexey Gvishiani was elected a member of the European Academy ("Academia Europaea") in the section EARTH & COSMIC SCIENCES.

September 6, 2017. A press conference was held at the Central House of Journalists at a regular meeting in the frame of "Scientific Wednesdays" with the presentation "System Analysis of Earth Data for Reducing Natural and Technogenic Disasters" by Director of the Geophysical Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences Academician Alexey Dzhermenovich Gvishiani. The head of GC RAS spoke about the work of the institute, importance of geomagnetic studies and their practical application, international cooperation with foreign research institutes and forthcoming elections at the Russian Academy of Sciences. During the meeting, the GC RAS scientists presented a digital innovative spherical screen. At the end of the presentation, Director of GC RAS gave an interview to the journalists.

August 23, 2017. Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Deputy Director for Science of the Geophysical Center A. Soloviev was appointed Delegate of RAS to the International Association of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy (IAGA), replacing Director of the Geophysical Center Academician A. Gvishiani. At the same time, A. Gvishiani remains the national representative in the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG), which includes IAGA.

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".
