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.

Innovative development and protecting intellectual property in the digital economy
1 June 2017

As digital outputs become more widespread, IP protection for channels delivering digital content and services and associated administration of rights (including decentralized registries of rights) are critical for spurring innovation and competitiveness. Countries which have adopted robust intellectual property systems stand to gain a competitive advantage. Given shortened product lifecycles and relative ease in bringing innovation to market, what legal protection limitations should be considered? How can we protect rights and ensure fair compensation for authors, researchers, and businesses, and is it true that the role of IP protection is increasing in the digital economy? Which priorities should be included in national intellectual property policy and what is lacking in Russia’s approach? Which organizations can act as drivers of development, and what steps does the state need to take to make this happen?
