The HRJRG programme was launched 2006 as a joint initiative of Helmholtz Association and Russian Foundation for Basic Research. Since then 32 Helmholtz-Russia Joint Research Groups out of 5 calls of proposals have been established in 6 research fields "Energy", "Earth and Environment", "Health", "Key Technologies", "Structure of Matter", "Aeronautics, Space and Transport" and funded during a three-year-period.

More than 80 experts – mostly from Russia and Germany – participated in the event. The goal of the workshop was to find out the results of outstanding HRJRG research projects, to define new forms of cooperation and to discuss a new cooperation programme for support of international research groups. Other current possibilities for funding joint research were also presented to the audience by partner organizations, such as Delegation of the European Union to the Russian Federation, International Bureau of BMBF, FASIE and others.
