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 155 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

The Export Potential of Russian Technologies and Education
4 June 2021

In a world dominated by two competing tech superpowers — China and the US — many countries are struggling to secure technological sovereignty and maintain a sufficient foundation to continue their own scientific and technological development. Russia — like Germany, France, Japan, Brazil, India, Turkey, and others — is faced with a strategic challenge between joining one of the two main hubs, or attempting to build their own standards and systems. Decisions regarding technological direction, planning, and integration pathways will be among the biggest faced over the coming 20–30 years. Furthermore, cooperation in the tech sphere is becoming a key aspect of international relations. Russia, like other countries, is set to build a next-generation digital infrastructure, and is in a position to do so in cooperation with its partners, emphasizing open global standards and platforms. In forging scientific and technological alliances, Russia has the opportunity to move towards achieving technological independence, which will be key to building trust and making the digital environment more secure. What needs to be done to facilitate exports of Russian technologies and know-how? What should be Russia’s global technology strategy, and how should institutions operate in pursing the country’s goals? What steps could the government take to support Russian companies, build experience, and increase lobbying resources, which pale in comparison to those of international competitors? And what could be the government’s role in developing new technological standards and market norms and rules?
