ABSTRACT: Environmental and climate change not only implies many research needs, but also offers a wide arena for (re)activating collaborations between Russia and the international scientific community. Despite a variety of economic and logistic challenges, as well as political and administrative caveats, I advocate how to help mitigate a deterioration of the Russian Academy of Sciences, to reduce the brain drain from the world’s largest country, and to facilitate access to, and the exploring of, unique paleo-archives.


KEY WORDS: Environmental change · Brain drain · Interdisciplinary research · Paleo-archives · Russia · Scientific collaboration
