The Roscongress Foundation – a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and sporting, public, and cultural events.

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 2,500 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 122 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 69 countries worldwide.

Construction in the North: Longevity and Durability
10 April 2019
09:00—10:30

The Arctic is a region of strategic importance to Russia. Consequently, large-scale projects to modernize and reconstruct social, industrial, residential, transport, and other infrastructure require new construction regulations which take into account the harsh conditions of the permafrost. The huge man-made impact on Arctic temperatures and the environment is leading an increased risk of buildings deteriorating or collapsing. Work will continue in 2019 to update the regulatory framework governing construction in Russia. This will primarily concern the use of new materials and technology. How should the regulatory framework governing design and construction in the Arctic look? What modern construction materials and technologies could be used to improve efficiency and lower operating costs? What should be done to organize a monitoring system for the constantly changing conditions of the permafrost?
