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.

Digital Security in Cities of the Future
3 June 2021
One of the priority tasks of the Russian Government is to create a comfortable urban environment and comfort is clearly and inextricably linked to digital technologies in people’s minds. In 2020, the Ministry of Construction of the Russian Federation established standards for ‘smart cities’. Now, the state corporation VEB.RF and KB Strelka are working to establish standards for city master plans which contain a separate section devoted to the digitalization of city systems and services. Along with the obvious advantages that digital technologies can bring, there are several limitations and challenges, and the most pressing of these is security. This includes questions of how to protect personal data and how to counteract cyber-attacks or hacks of city systems, which could paralyse an entire city with the appropriate level of digitalization.

1. Can we trust private companies to digitalize cities?
2. Is there room for international cooperation on this?
3. Is there a balance to be struck between integrated digitalization and security?
