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.

Science and Life: The Boundaries of the Possible
We need to set the dialogue between science and society and use popular science outlets and channels to help society understand that everything that surrounds us is defined by science. Society should set objectives for science, and science should explain society that nothing else can answer most relevant questions and resolve problems of the humanity

New Approaches to Governance, Research and Protection of the World Ocean
We must not try to move forward alone. We need to consolidate our efforts, we need new technology, we need to share this technology

New Approaches to Governance, Research and Protection of the World Ocean
The entire World Ocean is covered by a set of intergovernmental agreements which regulate fishing in separate regions. And the potential for conflict naturally exists. As mineral resources on land became ever-more scarce, a great many countries set their sights on the World Ocean. <...> We can already see aspects of competitiveness. It is crucial that Russia does not lag behind in this regard

New Approaches to Governance, Research and Protection of the World Ocean
The world is inexorably moving towards the World Ocean – we are depending more and more on it. <...> Crucially, it is where a great many of the planet’s mineral resources are concentrated – minerals which are becoming ever more interesting to humanity. An enormous amount of biological resources is concentrated there too, which could help solve all food problems worldwide

Science and Society: A Strategy for Future Generations
Now the Russian Academy of Sciences is becoming more and more open. We discuss that the Academy should expand its presence in schools and colleges and become available to the society – and it is obviously getting done. Why do we need that? In younger generations, 80% of people get information in their gadgets, on the web. But information there is depersonalized. When it is face-to-face interaction, it is first-hand information

The Challenges of New Territories: Space, the Arctic, and the World Ocean
As for the Arctic, we need robotic means above all else because it’s an extreme habitat for humans […] We need technical means here that can replace a person

The Challenges of New Territories: Space, the Arctic, and the World Ocean
We still don’t have sufficiently advanced machines, for example, to extract mineral resources from the ocean’s depths. Underwater engineering is a completely new industry that is just now emerging in certain countries that are experiencing a shortage of commodities and are trying to find these resources in the depths of the world ocean

The Challenges of New Territories: Space, the Arctic, and the World Ocean
Even technologically advanced countries are not ready to carry out the large-scale development of, say, minerals in a manner that is optimal and cautious with respect to the ocean’s ecosystems […] Ecosystem research is needed above all else. It is essential to understanding how, for example, deep-water ecosystems function so that we can make an informed choice […] We need to develop modern technical means, specifically underwater robotics, and there has been very good progress here […] The Institute of Marine Technology Problems, which faces these tasks, is able to design effective underwater robotics that are already producing the new knowledge we need about deep-sea ecosystems and resources

The Challenges of New Territories: Space, the Arctic, and the World Ocean
We need to build new research vessels and conduct complex expeditions, when geologists, climatologists, oceanologists, biologists, chemical hydrologists, etc. all work together […] The world ocean is a living space with which the future of mankind is connected. No matter how seemingly endless this resource seems to us, we need to develop a strategy for a careful approach to and the careful future of its exploitation

The Challenges of New Territories: Space, the Arctic, and the World Ocean
We are gaining truly amazing new knowledge about what is at the ocean’s depths. It is a storehouse of mineral resources, huge reserves of hydrocarbons, and huge reserves of biological resources that exceed those on land by several times
