The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, 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, 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.

Nuclear Energy – the Basis of Global Partnership and Current Development
3 October 2018
09:00—10:15
The last decade was marked by an important stage in power development that manifested in a gradual shift towards carbon free energy sources. The Paris Climate Change Summit has set a global trend to alter the world energy balance in favour of power generation with zero CO2 emissions.
This focus undoubtedly opens extensive possibilities for nuclear energy development. Today atom accounts for slightly more than 1/10 of world energy production, around 400 GW. The implementation of the Paris Climate Change Conference decisions and addressing global environmental problems require an essential increase of these figures by 2050.
The need for a transition to a new level of cooperation within the international atomic community, that could be called a global partnership, is pending today. Such partnerships, including in NPP construction as a key element of the modern nuclear energy, are of critical importance to solving systemic tasks of the atomic energy — ensuring energy safety, stability of supplies and environmentally-friendly generation.
