The Roscongress Foundation will present a new information and analytical system integrated into a new website www.roscongress.org at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.
The system combines the best practices of world development institutions with Russian know-hows in information analysis and provides quick and convenient access to all materials of major business events of the country organized by the Roscongress Foundation. The site features talks, interviews and comments from nearly 4 thousand speakers, as well as a well-stocked library of analytical materials, generated by the Foundation, leading international research and consulting companies.
Convenient navigation lets users search by topic, author, name or venue of the event. Experts, scientists and development institutions gained a unique source of information organized in more than 800 sessions and 140 topics of the country’s development agenda. “In today’s world success is largely determined by the information and big data processing skills. For more than ten years the Roscongress Foundation has accumulated a colossal knowledge base. Today, systematized by industry, challenges, companies and many other parameters it turns into an efficient tool for identifying main trends that define the global economic outlook. Thus, the Roscongress Foundation becomes a fully-fledged non-financial development institution that provides an analytical platform for shaping the strategy of the Russian economical development,” said Adviser to the President of the Russian Federation Anton Kobyakov.
The Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation was launched in February 2018 as a part of the Russian Investment Forum. Between now and then the idea of building a portal consolidating knowledge on key topics of the Foundations events’ business agenda has been actively supported by the expert community.
“Roscongress is the major organizer of business events in Russia, and the number of speaker participants can already be compared with the population of a small country,” said Alexander Ivlev, Managing Partner of EY for Russia. “It seems to me that the Roscongress’ idea of setting up such a platform makes sense and, most importantly, its main advantage is providing access to interesting, relevant, and often times unique information and analytics, all in one place. We look forward to tapping into this source to present out analytical materials and reports.”
“The Roscongress’ information and analytical platform is instrumental for those dealing with information: analysts, researchers, political scientists, the participants of forums and conferences in preparation of their talks,” said Chief Executive Officer of the Analytical Credit Rating Agency (ACRA) Ekaterina Trofimova. “The scale of the Roscongress’ events and the fact that they are held regularly provide an opportunity to identify major trends and moods in a convenient format. Considering the obvious shortage of high-quality comprehensive databases in Russia and the centralized analytical information storage issues, arguably this project already sparks a lot of interest.”
