Since 2011, Shvabe has been cooperating with the Moscow Institute of Engineers in Geodesy, Aerophotography, and Cartography (MIIGAiK).
The key spheres of cooperation are:
- Development of fundamental and applied research in electro-optical instrument engineering, global satellite navigation systems, and modern technology in geodesy, digital cartography, and navigation.
- Performance of scientific, research, experimental, and engineering activities and application of their results to the educational process and personnel training in electro-optical and satellite instrument engineering.
- Engagement of highly qualified employees of the Holding, as well as graduate students, undergraduates, and specialists of MIIGAiK in joint projects.
