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 160 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

Open session with the participation OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) International Working Group on Improving the Gender Balance in the Nuclear Sector
15 October 2021
14:00—15:00
Several international organizations have made it a priority to achieve equal male and female participation in the development of the nuclear sector. Experts have claimed that such an approach will help ensure long-term stability in nuclear technology. According to IAEA data, women make up 22.4% of the workforce in the nuclear sector. In Russia, this figure is 30%. Several nations have made it a strategic objective to increase the number of women in the nuclear sector. The OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) is working systemically to assess the contribution made by women in the development of the nuclear sector. The organization also endeavours to get girls interested in the natural sciences, engineering, and technology, and develops recommendations for OECD nations.

What is the OECD NEA international working group doing to help achieve these aims? What are the main principles underlying the strategy to increase female participation in the nuclear sector? Could a single strategy be applied across several countries? How could Russian practice be utilized internationally? What can be done to improve working conditions and career prospects for women and girls choosing to work in STEM?
