Welcome to the website of the Competence Centre for Cooperation with International Organizations, established on the basis of the Information and Coordination Centre for Cooperation with the OECD (OECD-HSE Partnership Centre) wich has been part of the HSE since 2004. Right now the Centre is a part of the HSE Institute for Statistical Studies and Economics of Knowledge.
The Centre’s tasks include information and analytical support for cooperation between Russian executive bodies and the international institutions and regional associations. We place greater emphasis on such key areas of international cooperation as sustainable economic growth, further trade liberalization, digital transformation, ensuring a decent quality of life, food security, the development of breakthrough technologies and innovations, combating the negative effects of climate change, building smart cities and spatial development territories and many others.
