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.

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.

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.
