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.

The 7th International Conference on Quantum Technology (ICQT) to be held in 2023

The 7th International Conference on Quantum Technology, ICQT 2023, is set to be held in July 2023 at the World Trade Centre in Moscow. ICQT is one of the most prestigious research events in the quantum technology field. From 2011 onwards, every other year, the conference has brought together academics from the world’s leading universities and research centres, experts and businesspeople working on the creation and rollout of quantum technology-based solutions.

The conference will form part of the Decade of Science and Technology in the Russian Federation which Russian President Vladimir Putin decreed would commence from 2022. The event’s organizers are the Russian Quantum Centre (RQC), the Rosatom State Corporation’s quantum technology division and the Roscongress Foundation. The event will focus on quantum technology and present the latest achievements in the development and application of commercial products.

«The development of quantum technology holds great promise for resolving strategic government objectives in the fields of data protection, health and the development of all areas of national security technology. We’re approaching a time when quantum technology is evolving from the realms of abstract science and fantasy into tangible products and services. It’s now becoming extremely important for us to acquaint the public with this technology, to engage investors in dialogue and to roll out projects that allow its widespread application,» emphasized Anton Kobyakov, Adviser to the President of the Russian Federation.

A plan for the development of quantum computing was approved in Russia in 2019, and 2022 saw one of the first results of the implementation of the roadmap — the creation of a prototype 4-qubit ion quantum processor. Continued development of this project will allow Russia to achieve quantum supremacy — the ability to solve problems that classic computers cannot. The creation of a fully-functional computer will lead to a huge increase in productivity in those scientific fields where simultaneous calculations have to be carried out involving huge amounts of data. Quantum technology is designed to provide Russia with technological independence and leadership through potential scientific breakthroughs in logistics, data protection, chemistry, pharmacology and other fields requiring complex parallel computations. The result embedded in the roadmap is not limited to the creation solely of prototype quantum processors and specialized software, but envisages the creation of a fully-fledged Russian industry and its integration into the global community.

«Over the 11 years that it has been running, the conference has become an event eagerly anticipated not only by Russian academics and entrepreneurs but also by representatives of the global science and technology community — many global achievements in the quantum technology field have been announced at the ICQT. These days, it isn’t just a scientific event but a platform at which scientists and business can come together, and it’s a key tool in bringing quantum technology to a wider audience,» noted Ruslan Yunusov, Head of Project Office for Quantum Technologies, ROSATOM.

The conference programme comprises two parts: a closed high-level scientific programme from the world’s leading technology universities and research centres, and an Open Day with public presentations by industry leaders, a panel discussion and an exhibition area. With this format, the conference will cover all areas of quantum technology development: from the latest scientific achievements and presentations of commercial products using quantum effects to a discussion of the investment market.
