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.

Inheritance and Succession
It seems to me that the issue of a large family quarrel is a never-ending one in Russia. <…> I would like to find possible solutions which in Russia would not lead to a major conflict or revolution, because revolution strikes me as a kind of quarrel between children for their inheritance

Inheritance and Succession
Death is simply not an accepted topic for discussion in Russia. In Germany, they can have a talk about it with others round the table, but not in Russia. It is very much a taboo subject, since it is so wrapped up in the sacred, in superstition. And yet, the concept of “burial money” is widespread in society – it is the original form of savings for the Russian population. So, people think about the topic, but there is no discussion of it, as a cultural wall has been put up. The culture can change, but only with sustained effort over the course of several generations

Inheritance and Succession
In 2011, we <...> researched modernization in East Asia. One of the main factors for success was that there had to be a patriotic elite able to take a 20-year perspective. <…> That’s why I’m concerned about how we acquire a long-term perspective. It definitely exists within a family unit. <…> And there are probably other grounds for having a long-term perspective outside of family considerations, such as spiritual and intellectual considerations. Schools of thought can, for example, take a long view; however, the concept of succession in a family is the most common and understandable one. If we want to adopt a long view in the country in order to address problems facing Russia and the world, we should probably grasp at that straw

Strategy for Integration of Science, Education, and Business
Where are our drivers?” And the answer is where there is global competitiveness. We have global state-owned companies such as Rosatom, Roscosmos and Rostec, and private companies such as Yandex, Kaspersky and Mail.ru, which are forced to adapt as the prevailing winds of the global economy change. We have twenty, maybe thirty globally competitive universities. <...> I would like to try to build a triangle so that global companies and global universities could be the drivers of our cultural competitiveness and our primary schools, otherwise it will soon be eroded by digitalization

Sochi (Russian-Austrian) dialogue. Economy of culture
The state is above all responsible for preserving self-identity. <…> But the state has to be responsible for development, thus the money that comes from the state has to go towards the growth of trust and self-fulfillment, not survival. You cannot measure that with a survey. Why does the business need it then? <…> In the past 50 years, the successful countries had patriotic elites thinking at least 20 years ahead

Sochi (Russian-Austrian) dialogue. Economy of culture
Being an economist, I belong to that strange group of people that believe culture is more important than economy. This current appeared a while back: there was a trend that appeared about fifteen years ago, it was called ‘culture matters’. A whole bunch of projects was launched that illustrated many things that happen (or do not happen) in the economy and how those things are connected with people’s values or behavioral patterns: in other words, with culture
