The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 179 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian t.me/Roscongress, English – t.me/RoscongressDirect, and Spanish t.me/RoscongressEsp. Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

Innovative Russian Projects at the Russia–Africa Forum

Participants in the Russia—Africa Forum had an opportunity to learn first-hand about the high technologies presented in the Roscongress Foundation’s Building Trust Area. Developers demonstrated their knowhow to visitors in the exhibition area, which was organized by the Innovation Space and the Innosocium LAB. The Business Priority: Perspective pitch session resulted in the two most impressive projects being granted Business Priority status, which will ensure they receive comprehensive support from the Roscongress Foundation.

The company Health Source acquired Business Priority status with a decentralized drinking water supply project. The unique automated equipment and technologies will be broadly used in Africa, where the problem of access to clean drinking water is very acute.

The Oasis project from the company Avtonomika was also granted the status of Business Priority. It allows for the geoengineering of habitable areas in the desert and arid areas. The African representatives were particularly interested in this project.


Michael Rutman, the vice president of marketing and sales at the company Watergen, believes that «every person in the world from birth has the right to the basic need for clean drinking water, regardless of where he/she lives, colour, or religious beliefs. Our engineering solution makes this a reality.» The medium-sized Watergen device is capable of producing up to 900 litres of fresh drinking water per day from the air. A similar large unit produces up to 5,000 litres of water per day.


The Kalancha project obtained the prestigious Business Priority status at the last SPIEF. The unique technology for the gas-powder fire extinguishing of reservoirs with oil and petroleum products is already being used by Russian energy companies. Fires can be eliminated in 30 seconds from the time they start and no water is needed. The African representatives were also interested in this technology.


Bionovatik, a major innovative company in Russia that produces and introduces biological products for crop production, showed off its line of popular products: growth regulators, biological fertilizers, biological fungicides, and biological insecticides.


Thanks to the company Intelligent Scanning Systems, visitors to the Building Trust Area were able to test their accuracy and speed at shooting moving targets using weighted hunting rifle models. As part of the Roscongress Sport Club project, over 300 people took part in a virtual shooting tournament at the VRComm stand. The virtual reality technologies lived up to their expectations — some people hunted in the savannah, while others hunted in the Russian taiga. The best shooters received prizes from the Roscongress Foundation.

The World Wi-Fi project is a great example of ‘Uberization’, which has become so popular in the modern world. It consists of a global decentralized free Wi-Fi network on private routers. Each router owner can distribute free Wi-Fi, connect other users, and earn money from it. Everyone benefits as a result: ordinary users do not have to pay for the Internet, router owners receive income, and advertisers get their own target audience. The company already has examples of cooperation with Botswana, Kenya, and South Africa.

Smart Clinic is essentially a new digital format for primary medical care that is unparalleled around the world. The project of the Amur Medical Information and Analytical Centre (AMIAC) consists of a compact unit that is equipped with diagnostic equipment and has the ability to receive online consultations offered by dedicated specialists from partner clinics. This project will help to solve another acute socioeconomic problem on the African continent — a lack of quality medical care in many of its regions.
