International cooperation

VSEGEI, being the successor to the Geological Committee of Russia, established in 1882, continues and develops the tradition of wide international scientific cooperation in the field of geological exploration of mineral resources and assessment of the mineral and raw material potential of the largest regions of the world.
Nowadays, VSEGEI employees are the part of the leadership and participate in the activities of international organizations and programs, such as the Intergovernmental Council of the CIS countries for exploration, use and conservation of mineral resources, the UNESCO International Geoscience and Geoparks Program (IGPP), International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS) , Commission for the Geological Map of the World (CGMW), International Commission on Stratigraphy (ICS), etc.
VSEGEI is one of the organizers and active participants in a number of large international projects implemented by geological services, national academies of sciences and universities of more than 150 world countries: OneGeology, EMODnet, "GIS Atlas of Geological Maps of Northern Eurasia (Russia and other CIS countries)", "Atlas of Geological Maps of Circumpolar Arctic at 1:5,000,000 Scale", "Atlas of Geological Maps of Northern, Central and Eastern Asia and Adjacent Territories at 1:2,500,000 scale".
Participation in these projects helps to unite the scientific, technological, and informational potential of various countries to solve complex scientific geological and geopolitical problems.
