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

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian (t.me/Roscongress), English (t.me/RoscongressDirect), and Spanish (t.me/RoscongressEsp). Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

The Role of Quantum Computers in Responding to Global Challenges
4 June 2021
17:00—18:15

The digital era in which we live owes much to quantum physics, and computers, smart phones, memory cards, and many other devices are direct results of research in the field and have become an irreplaceable part of our everyday lives. However, innovations and applications in this field have far from exhausted their potential, and functional quantum computers may soon appear. These will be capable of things that were, until recently, only possible in science fiction. Such computing power far exceeds modern supercomputers, and applications may range from developing medicines for currently incurable diseases to modelling new materials, and cracking any system using classical cryptographic methods. Meanwhile, the events of the past year have shown that there are global threats capable of affecting the global economy and changing everyone’s lives. Will quantum computing become the answer to many major challenges facing humanity in the near future?
