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.

Energy-Efficient and Smart Cities: French and Russian Experience
3 October 2018

A smart city — or ville du futur — is an urban environment boasting high living conditions not only today, but for future generations too. It is a city founded on principles of sustainable development. Accessible energy resources and sustainable consumption is widely accepted as a key requisite for urban development, with energy efficient technologies as integral components. Cities cover a mere 2% of the earth’s surface, but account for 75% of energy consumption and 80% of CO2 emissions. The Trianon Dialogue, a Russian-French civil society forum initiated by the presidents of the two countries, has put forward several topics for discussion. These include questions concerning the development, construction, management and modernization of cities; and implementing digital technologies in the urban infrastructure, thereby developing the theme of the dialogue for 2018: «City of the Future». Experience has enabled French and Russian cities and energy companies to cite numerous successful examples in urban planning, automation, building security, electrical fixtures, and housing management systems, and all in environments where the urban population is growing apace, and where citizens’ expectations are high. What needs to be done for a city to become smarter? How can energy efficiency be increased, and how can fast-developing digital technologies be integrated in the urban infrastructure? What results in optimizing electricity consumption and minimizing energy losses have Russian and French cities achieved? How can the environment be protected as urban spaces grow and new projects are implemented?
