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 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.

New Collaboration in Agricultural Education: A Duet of Business and Universities
2 June 2021
The Russian government is planning to implement the Priority-2030 programme in 2021–2030, which will enable at least 100 universities to receive grant support and use it for their development. The programme will kick off in the coming weeks, and agricultural universities have a chance to benefit from it significantly. This is crucial because growth in Russian agribusiness is dictated most of all by the educational level of experts working in the industry. Today, 54 universities subordinate to the Ministry of Agriculture are involved in training personnel for agriculture, but universities are not the only ones involved in this process. Big business is gradually becoming a prominent player in the agricultural education system. Its presence can be seen at all stages of training: from early vocational guidance to continuing education programmes. Why do agricultural holdings even need this? What issues do they resolve and how do they negotiate with universities? Does Russian agribusiness benefit from this cooperation?

Discussion topics:
— Universities: a major factor in the growth of domestic agribusiness. Challenges and opportunities facing the Russian agricultural education system;
— Cooperation between universities and agribusiness: examples of successful collaboration. Which goals have already been achieved and which ones are next?
— Agricultural education and business in five, ten, and fifteen years. What is the future of this cooperation?
— Will Russian agribusiness win out in the long term?
