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 155 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.

Investing in HR: Partnership between Business and Education in Creative Industries
2 June 2021

Russia is on the verge of transitioning from a resource-based economy to an economy of ideas. This transition will be possible once the problem of HR shortages is solved. Instead of looking for talented graduates post factum, businesses can directly play an active role in the education of future specialists. In addition, to effectively adapt business to changes, employees need to acquire additional knowledge and skills to help companies grow. Cooperation between business and education is becoming a new trend and necessity of the 21st century. What can business get from cooperation with educational organizations? What barriers are hindering the integration of real cases and briefs from companies into training programmes? Educational standards vs. the labour market: how can we keep up with changes and provide relevant education? Supply and demand: what skills and expertise are in short supply today and what kind of graduates should universities be producing for the creative economy? Competition for talent: who dictates the conditions in creative industries — the employer or the staff? Social responsibility: how does investment in education affect a business’s reputation and why aren’t endowment funds a trend for Russia yet?
