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.

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.

Women Scientists and the Global Challenges of Our Time
14 October 2021
15:00—16:30
The global challenges faced by humanity today are giving rise to major risks for the economy, society, and healthcare management. Scientific and technological development is playing a key role in helping to assess risks and possible dangers to humanity, as well as creating a stable trajectory of growth. Female scientists are playing an increasingly central role in furthering scientific knowledge and helping to develop technology, products, and services that respond to the priorities set out by governments. Women now account for a third of all scientists around the world. Discoveries made by female scientists are motivating girls to go into science and create innovative products. Notably, women are named among the authors of more than half of all patents in the biotech, pharmacy, and fine chemistry spheres. These are all products with the potential to bring tangible benefits to people. In today’s world, global challenges can only be successfully addressed through international cooperation with female involvement.

What are the most promising areas of science in terms of future development? What international support programmes for female scientists are in place? Which international initiatives to develop the technologies, products, and services needed to improve people’s quality of life involve female scientists?
