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.

Up and Up: Preparing Leaders That Don't Just Change the World, But Make It Better
8 June 2019
12:00—13:15

Currently, one of the key goals of socioeconomic development is fostering human capital capable of making effective and targeted economic and technological breakthroughs. In today’s unstable environment, which shifts rapidly between development trends, there is demand for all levels of specialists with diverse competencies, capable of applying their skills under new conditions and in unanticipated situations. At the same time, a separate challenge is developing human capital in such a way that people not only have the mental skills and training to solve professional problems, but are also capable of taking responsibility for global development — of anticipating challenges, evaluating risks, and making decisions focused not on local achievements, but on long-term effects, taking humanitarian aspects into account. What is a ‘social elevator’? How effective are ‘social elevator’ models in Russia and abroad? How is Russia becoming a ‘land of opportunity’? What is global responsibility and how can it be included in management models? Thought leaders from the cradle: when should we start preparing tomorrow’s professionals?
