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 188 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.

Quantum technologies and healthcare: World renowned experts to discuss the opportunities of improving life expectancy and quality of well-being via quantum technologies

The Russian Quantum Center, the Roscongress Foundation and Rosatom are proud to announce the third international online discussion within the framework of «Quantum of the Future».

«Quantum of the Future» is a series of open sessions dedicated to quantum computing, quantum communications and complete data security, as well as applications of quantum technologies in healthcare.

The third discussion, titled «Can quantum technologies grant us immortality?», will be held 18th June at 5pm Moscow time on the Roscongress Foundation’s website and YouTube channel.

Moderating the event will be Ruslan Yunusov, who is heading Rosatom’s project to build a quantum computer in Russia. Viewers will be able to put forward their questions during the stream or in advance of the programme by writing to lis@rqc.ru. «Quantum sensors are a very promising technology that is based on the high sensitivity of quantum systems,» explains Ruslan Yunusov, «therefore, with the help of such sensors one can measure the temperature of each individual cell. Five years ago, Harvard scientists proved that the temperature of cancer cells is higher than the temperature of healthy cells. Quantum sensors can identify and help destroy malignant cells without affecting the healthy ones. And this is just one example of implementing quantum technology into healthcare.»

Speakers at the online discussion:

  • Otmar Wiestler, President of The Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres, the largest scientific organization in Germany, Chairman and scientific member of the Foundation Board of the German Cancer Research Centre (DKFZ);
  • Gleb Sukhorukov, specialist in the field of physical chemistry, Professor at Queen Mary University of London (UK), Professor at Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, was named among top-10 world-known scientists of Russian origin by Forbes in 2011;
  • Antonio Malgaroli, Full Professor of Physiology at Vita-Salute San Raffaele University (Italy), undertakes studies about how the brain works;
  • Vittorio Sebastiano, Assistant Professor at Stanford Medicine (USA), explores the rejuvenation of the cells;
  • David Verdesi, anthopologist and author of the Superhuman methodology based on the research of world religions and the latest discoveries in quantum physics and neurobiology;
  • Maksim Ostras, head of the «M-Granat» project that specializes in developing ultra-sensitive magnetic field sensors for applications in medicine.

The programme is being supported by MKR Media and the Friends for Leadership business initiative in partnership with PGBgroup2.0 and popular science publication N+1.

The first meetup titled «Quantum computing: Answers to Global Challenges» occurred 4th June. The participants discussed how our day-to-day lives would soon change dramatically thanks to quantum technology.

The second meetup titled «Quantum communications: absolutely secured future» occurred 11th June. World-renowned scientists as well as business associates weighed on the topic of quantum cryptography and fully protected communication.

Broadcasts and summary are available on the Roscongress Foundation website by the link.

The fourth discussion, titled «Quantum Technology Markets: Who Is Investing and Why?» is scheduled for 25th June. The list of speakers for this discussion is currently being updated and will be announced in due course on the Roscongress Foundation website, and the News section of the Russian Quantum Center website.

We also invite you to learn more about the advancement of quantum technology in Russia and worldwide from the lectures on RQC’s official YouTube channel.
