A socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions, congress, exhibitions, business, social and sporting, public, and cultural events.

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 163 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.

The Accessible Arctic: Standards, Safety, and Sustainability
10 April 2019
09:00—10:30

The development of new territories and the implementation of promising industrial projects, including the use of digital solutions, would not be possible without the regulatory and technical support of new technologies guaranteeing the safety and quality of products and services. Differences in production processes in national standardization and conformity assessment systems make the development of international projects in remote and hard-to-reach regions more costly, requiring additional organizational, financial, and time resources. How may overcoming technical barriers through the development of common approaches within the framework of special policies and uniform standardization and conformity assessment mechanisms help in addressing the problems of Arctic development? Are real production facilities ready, when entering this difficult market, to be competitive, and at what expense? Who and how should create the rules of the game where there are none? How may a highly sought-after infrastructure be built for the improvement of environmental sustainability and in order to create a comfortable environment for work and life in the Arctic?
