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.

Schools of the Future. Where, How and What Will We Teach Our Children?

Based on instructions from the Russian president, 1,300 new modern schools are set to open in Russia by 2024, which could radically change the state of educational infrastructure in the country and eliminate second shifts. The plan is to attract RUB 800 billion in private funds from Russian credit institutions for the RUB 400 billion that the government is investing in the programme. However, when implementing projects to build modern schools in the Far Eastern Federal District, some difficulties have arisen: most of the regions are subsidized, which has led to problems in co-funding the construction of educational institutions. The current standards and price estimates do not take into account the conditions and peculiarities of the Far East, which affects the quality of projects and the level of architectural solutions for schools, and diminishes the educational potential of the new facilities. A unified catalogue is needed, i.e., a register of solutions for educational institutions that is adapted for the Far Eastern Federal District and will optimize costs and design time. An increase in housing construction will exacerbate the need for modern social infrastructure and the search for a systematic solution by the government, investors, developers, and the parties involved to structure concession agreements in an effort to create new schools in the Far East.
