April 14, 2016. The "Report on the state of basic science in the Russian Federation and on the most important scientific achievements of Russian scientists in 2015", approved by the General meeting of RAS members on March 23, 2016, describes as a major achievement in the direction "Physical fields, the internal structure of the Earth and deep geodynamic processes" the “Method of system analysis to detect areas of possible occurrence of epicenters of significant, strong and strongest earthquakes", developed at GC RAS by a group of researchers, including ​​Academician A. Gvishiani, principal research scientist Prof. S. Agayan and senior researcher B. Dzeboev. The method for the first time applies system analysis as a powerful tool to detect areas of possible occurrence of epicenters of strong earthquakes. The team of researchers used the proposed method to detect the areas of possible occurrence of the epicenters of strongest earthquakes (M≥7,75) in the mountain belt of the Andes in South America and significant earthquakes (M≥5) in the Caucasus.

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".
