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.

Career Development Pathways for a Young Scientist: Science, Business, or Technological Entrepreneurship. New Opportunities for Growth on the Way to Knowledge Economy
5 June 2021

At this time, there are certain stereotypes about a scientist’s work and the opportunities for their professional growth that, to a large extent, are tied to how Russian science worked throughout the 20th century. However, in the current economic environment, taking into account the objectives set by the leadership of the country of increasing the real contribution made by science to creating high-tech products and services, the operational mode of scientists has changed radically. Development of a number of high-tech industries increases the demand for innovative solutions by business and creates a new market for early research, commercial R&D, and innovative startups. Powerful in-house R&D centres were created and continue to grow that need highly qualified researchers and developers. There is now an opportunity for universities and research centres to create and grow their own startups, which can independently commercialize research results. There are several options for a young scientist. They can go to work for a company, become a research partner, or open their own startup; or maybe they could combine all of these? Each path has its own advantages and disadvantages, its own prospects and restrictions. How can one make an intelligent choice and what skills does a young scientist need to be successful?
