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 165 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 76 countries worldwide, and 154 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

Science and Innovation: Risks in the Name of Development
3 September 2021
12:30—14:00
Advanced knowledge and high technologies set the agenda when it comes to the development of our modern, connected world. Experience shows that scientific and technological potential is directly proportional to levels of economic development. The most important task for states aiming to achieve a leading position in the global innovation space is the use of intellectual resources and the development of a technology and information base. Science is becoming a key factor in social development, and an awareness of this fact is encouraging countries aiming for technology leadership to attract scientists and experts from other countries and actively build ties with international scientific and educational institutions. The development of science cooperation between states, whether national, regional or at the level of individual organizations, teams and researchers is coming to be determined by the very logic of human development. Integration is a key feature of international scientific and technological cooperation today, providing maximum economic and sociocultural benefits, which would be impossible to achieve if states were to rely purely on their own capabilities. What are the projects linking Europe and Asia? How can Russia’s Far East be integrated into a single scientific and technological Asia-Pacific space? How can we maximize the impact of our joint efforts? What digital, transport and energy technologies should be developed? Will we be able to identify new areas of common interest in the near future?
