Kabat travelled to Moscow to participate in two key events by the RSPP.
On 15 March, Kabat attended the the Russian Business Week, a platform for constructive interaction between representatives of the government, business, and experts community. At this event, Kabat joined the high-level International Forum at 2pm to discuss "Integration in Greater Eurasia: Risks and Opportunities".
The aim of the forum was to debate existing and proposed trade agreements in Greater Eurasia. Kabat was joined by Alexander Shokhin, President, Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs, Igor Morgulov, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, and other leading experts in economy and policy in Russia.
On 16 March, Kabat participated in the RSPP Congress, a high-level event which the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin attended. At this meeting, Kabat had the opportunity to meet with the Advisor to the President Academician Sergei Yryevitch Glazyev, and Former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Former Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, and President of the Russian International Affairs Council H.E. Igor Ivanovitch Ivanov.
Prior to the Russian Business Week and the RSPP congress, Kabat gave a lecture on 14 March at 10.30am at RANEPA on "Global transformation pathways. Value of systems science" and met with the Rector of the Academy Professor Vladimir A. Mau.
During his time in Moscow, Kabat further enhanced collaborative activities between Russia and IIASA by holding a number of high-level meetings with leading experts in government, academia and business, including:
Collaborations between IIASA and the Russian Federation
Since 2008 IIASA has intensified its collaborations with the Russian Federation (Russia), leading to new joint research projects, increased interactions with Russian policymakers, significant scientific exchange through people, and a highly productive publication record.
Current projects include exploring the challenges and opportunities of Eurasian economic integration, how to minimize wildfires, population aging in Russia, and advancing the methods of systems analysis. Interactions now take place regularly between IIASA and representatives from Russian Ministries and the Administration of the President of the Russian Federation.
Knowledge transfer between IIASA and Russia is also facilitated through multiple exchanges with Russian scientists who spend periods working in IIASA’s international and interdisciplinary research environment. The scientific output from these numerous formal and informal activities is highly productive, with almost 800 joint publications since 2008.
