Russian participants represent: Russian National Museum of Alexander Pushkin, St. Petersburg State University of Economics, State Hermitage Museum, Don State Technical University, Moscow State University of Geodesy and Cartography.

The UK side comprises: Manchester-St. Petersburg Friendship Society, Pushkin House, Scotland-Russia Forum, St. Petersburg Forum (Paisley, Scotland), English-Speaking Union and other British organisations and people that participate in Russian-British co-operation.
