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 133 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 70 countries worldwide.

Quantum Challenge for the Future
23 January 2020
16:00—17:00

The first quantum revolution, which was marked by the development of physics in the first half of the 20th century, led to the emergence of nuclear weapons, transistors, lasers, and subsequently mobile telephone communications and the Internet. The end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century was marked by a second quantum revolution whose consequences are still difficult to predict. This all led to the emergence of multiple quantum technologies, most of which are currently under development, while some are already in the stage of being applied on an experimental basis. One of the most promising areas in the development of quantum technologies is quantum computing, which will support the next round of technological breakthroughs and economic growth in many countries. Countries in which people have skills in creating quantum computers — a device that can use quantum effects to solve problems that are not available to the most powerful «classic» supercomputers — will be able to gain a long-term advantage and become leaders in the quantum race. But the main question is: what challenges will we face in the new quantum era?
