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.

Right on Target. What a University Admissions System Should Be Like
5 June 2021
14:00—15:00

University admissions are a key stage in human capital development in all countries. Further movement of talents, social mobility, and how well social lifts work depend on how fair and effective it is. This year, the Unified State Exam on which the Russian education system is based is celebrating its 20th year. Does the current system of university and college admissions meet the requirements of our times and global competition? What are the mechanisms that developed and developing countries use to place their graduates? Does the current system of Academic Olympics help to ensure social mix and access to high-quality education for young talents? How competitive is the Russian higher education admissions system?
