About us

The Agency for International Cooperation  encompasses a vast range of international initiatives. We work on large groundbreaking projects, as well as individual elements of international interaction: we translate and interpret; accompany delegations; perform international analysis; provide language training and conduct various educational workshops.

For more detailed information see "Our Services".

MISSION

Our mission is to promote intercultural communication and foster international relations, particularly aiming to facilitate the integration of Russian public, commercial and non-profit institutions into the world economy and global agenda. At the same time, we also provide assistance to foreign organisations operating in the Russian-speaking domain.

VISION

We believe that the productive development of public as well as private structures is impossible when operating in isolation, without direct active participation in international activities. We believe that reliance on best international practices and interaction with foreign partners not only enrich our experience, but also increase our chances of success in the global interconnected world.

Reviews

“I would like to express my gratitude to colleagues from the Agency for International Cooperation for their professional support of intercultural communication within the framework of ASI projects. Not only do they provide high quality translation and analytical services, but also ensure the most important aspect - mutual understanding between parties of a dialogue.”

Dmitriy Peskov Director of the "Young Professionals" direction at the Agency for Strategic Initiatives (ASI)

"Through our cooperation with the Agency for International Cooperation, they have become our long-term reliable partners and proved to be highly professional experts in their field. Attention to detail and ability to resolve issues in the shortest possible timeframe without compromising the final result - these are the hallmarks of the Agency's work with regard to all projects, from conducting educational programmes for our Expert community to providing support and interpretation services for our delegations abroad."

Robert Urazov Director General of the Union "Agency of development of professional communities and skilled workers "WorldSkills Russia"

"They are doing a great job and, most importantly, they have passion for what they do. They are responsible, they try fully understand the essence of each project, to understand how to complete it in a better way. I would definitely recommend them."

Pavel Luksha Professor of Practice at the Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO, Director of Global Education Futures and Protopia Labs projects

"I do not know many companies that would provide several types of high level services such as analytical research, translation, moderation. It is convenient to be able to make an order in a "one-stop shop", especially when you have a limited timeframe."

Aleksey Gusev Director of the Department for the Development of an Innovation Ecosystem at the Russian Venture Company (RVC)

"In collaboration with colleagues from the Agency for International Cooperation I have made remarkable progress in learning English. Moreover, I have received professional advice from them before applying for an MBA programme at the Chicago Booth in London. I can confirm that working with the AIC has helped me achieve my goal - getting accepted to one of the most prestigious universities in the world."

Aleksey Solovyov Managing Director of iTechCapital

"We appreciate the creative approach that the AIC company team undertakes in their job. We regularly have complex tasks for the AIC company, including work with several foreign languages at one time. We should mention the flexibility of company leadership in solving non-standard problems and the ability to build business communication in a constructive manner."

Ekaterina Ryseva Director of Quantity Research Department at Ipsos Comcon

"Employees of the Agency for International Cooperation show high competence and professionalism in each project when it comes to foreign languages and intercultural communication. Due to their responsibility and high quality standards, our colleagues from the AIC company always demonstrate excellent results, which we subsequently transfer to our Russian and foreign customers."

Gaya Gnidenko Project manager at Formatta

"During the years of our joint work in Russia and abroad, the Agency has established itself as a reliable partner and supplier of high quality translation and organisational services. We would particularly like to highlight the promptness in performing urgent tasks, punctuality, ability to communicate and treat our requests, as well as requests from our clients, with great care."

Aleksey Shalayev Director and co-founder at SQUADRA development

"I am grateful to the Agency for the timely translations of varying complexity, even technical texts with terms that have not yet been adapted by the English language and describe unique developments or technical phenomena that have no known equivalents."

Timur Shchukin Chief of Staff at the STI Neuronet working group

"The Agency has many creative projects that crossover into different subject areas - for example, foreign languages, intercultural communication and moderating skills. Projects of this kind secure our future - they allow us to create educational tracks designed to prepare us for professional challenges that we will face very soon. This is a unique case for Russia, as they create new communities that appreciate the value and importance of international communication."

Denis Korichin Member of the network partnership "Constructors of the communities of practice"

"Our projects often involve quite specific requests, from translating a rare language to moderating a multilingual group with simultaneous translation. The Agency for International Cooperation is always able to adequately provide that international cooperation, fully justifying its name."

Pavel Morozov Director and managing partner at the PR agency "Pioner and Co"
