The Roscongress Foundation – a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and sporting, public, and cultural events.

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 2,500 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 122 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 69 countries worldwide.

Where is the money? Financing the conversion to a smart city
16 June 2016

The impact of smart city applications is real and tangible. Leveraging the combination of sensory systems, the Internet of Things, cloud computing, and intelligent metering applications, municipalities worldwide are able to deliver high-quality services at vastly reduced prices. However, retrofitting the modern urban landscape is costly and the financing models are immature. Who is typically participating in the financing of the transition of municipalities into «smart cities»? What resources will be needed and what will be the consequences of such a transformation?
