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.

Smart Priority: From Technological Breakthroughs to Creating Conditions for Human Development
2 June 2021
In the modern world, smart cities aren’t just cities filled with digital technological solutions, but innovative centres that use modern smart technologies to enhance the efficiency of a city’s administration and improve the quality of life of its citizens on a daily basis by creating conditions for comfortable interaction with the urban environment. Smart technologies are integrated into the transport network, telecommunications, the electricity, gas, and water supply, medicine as well as public and road safety services, and allow for the more efficient allocation of resources and management of urban spaces.
However, the development of cities of the future is not only influenced by technology, but also by the transformation of people’s needs and demands. The concept of a smart city, in
addition to the intellectual membrane, should create conditions for people to develop, create, and build a business in a comfortable, safe, and eco-friendly environment.

In focus:

— What should a city of the future look like?
— What smart city technologies can fundamentally change the quality of life?
— What impact will the transformation of a person of the future have on shaping the
concept of a smart city?
— Can Russia become a trendsetter in the development of urban innovations?
