A socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions, congress, exhibitions, business, social and sporting, public, and cultural events.

The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, 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, and 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 5000 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 159 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

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.

Opening Doors to the Future: Legal Experiments as a Sine Qua Non of Digital Transformation
5 September 2019
13:45—15:15

The regulatory sandbox is a type of legislative regime, enabling test runs of initiatives whose implementation is made difficult or even impossible due to regulatory barriers. A number of leading countries are already using regulatory sandboxes to develop the optimal regulatory environment for the digital economy in the shortest amount of time — something that is impossible using conventional measures. Sandboxes are an effective response to both rapidly developing technologies and solutions, and to lack of clarity when it comes to regulating innovations without having analysed the market behaviour of the proposed product or service. Currently, regulatory sandboxes can be focused on a single economic sector (e.g. fintech sandboxes) or a number of industries in the digital economy, which is known as a universal regulatory sandbox. How do regulatory sandboxes currently function? What are the prospects for this type of legal experiment?
