UCMP and Moscow's Paleontological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (PIN) initiated a landmark agreement promoting intellectual, technological, and resource exchange in 1993. The agreement includes specimen and cast exchanges, paleontological expeditions in both Russia and North America, exhibit exchanges, data management systems sharing, and student interchange. The purpose of this agreement is to further the understanding of the fossil records in Russia and North America, make available the collections and resources of both institutions, promote field work in both regions for mutual benefit, involve students in the scientific cultures of each country, and promote an understanding of paleontology by the public.
