March 24, 2016. Deputy Director for Science, Professor of the Russian Academy of Sciences A. Soloviev took part in a meeting with Ingrid Verstraeten, Head of the US Geological Survey department for international programs with the countries of Eurasia and the members of the Arctic region, that took place at the Ministry of Education and Science of Russia.

Other representatives of the Russian Academy of Sciences, including: Geophysical Survey of RAS, Institute of Water Problems, Russian Academy of Sciences Department of Earth Sciences and the RAS Foreign Relations department attended the meeting. Representatives of the US Embassy in Russia and the Department of Science and Technology of the Ministry of Education also participated in the meeting.

The key topics of discussion were a draft agreement between the United States Geological Survey and the Russian Academy of Sciences and the development of scientific and technical cooperation in the field of natural sources and natural hazards in the framework of a memorandum of understanding between the Russian Federation and the United States.

A separate issue of discussion was an agreement on scientific cooperation in the field of geomagnetic research between the United States Geological Survey and the Russian Academy of Sciences represented by GC RAS. The US side expressed its interest in organizing the exchange of geomagnetic observations in real time. This issue is becoming increasingly important due to the deployment of a new geomagnetic observatory of INTERMAGNET on the Yamal Peninsula with the participation of GC RAS and USGS.

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".
