The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, 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, 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 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 188 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

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.

Platform-Based Work: Creating a New Area of Law
1 July 2022
12:15—13:45
Online platforms provide a new way of working which sidesteps the traditional dichotomy of being either employed or self-employed. The use of platforms to work on a regular basis is an area which is yet to be fully covered by law. Today, most countries are attempting to find ways of incorporating this form of working into their systems regulating social and economic relations. Around the world, legal precedents often end with recognition being given to a worker’s fundamental rights as per standard employment. However, these developments should not be viewed as a move towards equating platform-based work with traditional employment, given the regulatory vacuum that continues to exist. How should the interests of companies be taken into account so as to not scare away the players of a rapidly growing market? Conversely, what should be done to avoid any negative social consequences? What balance should be struck between the realities of the innovation economy and a fair labour market?
