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.

Major Challenges of the Science and Technology Decade
Today we are faced with the issue of building our own technological and scientific space. Naturally, given the critical mass, we cannot shape things. We can be participants, we can be initiators, we can be leaders of a bloc. However, we need partners – major partners – with whom we can build our technological, scientific, and economic space to withstand the future, the next technological cycle. Who could these partners be? I think India could well be one. There’s also Japan and Western Europe (once it comes to its senses and finally shakes off what is happening). Perhaps Southeast Asia. But if we do not address this problem – building a scientific and technological space – then it will be very hard for us to compete in 10–20 years. We won’t have this market. That is why scientific and technological diplomacy is of huge importance

Major Challenges of the Science and Technology Decade
We are currently seeing the formation of so-called technological blocs. These account for a large part of the market. We are talking about currency zones, the range of resources, philosophy, a development model, and of course a range of fundamental technologies for a particular bloc’s security and independence. Two blocs are clear to see. There is the Anglo-Saxon bloc, which encompasses the US, Canada, and Australia. The second one to emerge is of course China

Major Challenges of the Science and Technology Decade
In each area we need to primarily focus on our potential within the country and on technological platforms which we will build together with our partners. In order to achieve this, we need to have a discussion right now about how we are going to build large networks together with our partners in BRICS and the SCO, and with other countries which want to work with us. We also need to look at deep projects based on fundamental research. This encompasses space, a new financial system, and a great many other projects. <...> We need to set ambitious, fundamental objectives, and move towards the frontier together with our partners

Strategic Technology Alliances: A New Imperative for Business Cooperation in Eurasia
Instead of talking about politics, we can address technological policies. After 24 February, we have witnessed radical changes in the list of partners we can work with, build a common technological space with, and develop high-tech cooperation with. On the other hand, it is part of this lengthy and strategic process of reformatting the global technological frame. What we see now is the creation of new technological spaces. We are entering a new technological cycle with brand-new technological alliances

IT Leadership: An Alliance of Russia and the Developing World
We need to get the [Russian-Emirates Business Council] to sponsor the presence of our IT companies in foreign markets by 70%, at least for a year [...] They have money. They simply haven’t been assigned such a task

IT Leadership: An Alliance of Russia and the Developing World
Our Indian friends have created a department in the Ministry of Science that deals with the external environment. They are promoting their solutions very actively. This is technological diplomacy. In [Russia], when we talk about BRICS or about cooperation, for example, with India, there is no technological agenda and no IT agenda. Our diplomats don’t talk about it at all

Economic Mythology and the Problem of Sustainable Development
Only the government can pull the economy into the new technology cycle. Infrastructure costs and risks are too high for private business to invest <…> without government stimulation and control

Economic Mythology and the Problem of Sustainable Development
Today, we are entering a new technology cycle. <…> A competition among models will help select the most effective model. The world is now breaking into separate communities of states that compete. We see China as a centre of such a community. <…> We understand what America does as a centre. The question is can we adopt the Chinese model or the American one? We understand that we can’t because each of those models is good for the previous cycle. The next model will be shaped by competition among those large communities. We will have to create such a community one way or another

Global IT: Growth Resources
I propose starting a long, difficult, long conversation about where, how, and with whom to build platform consortia together. This is an important conversation that has not happened for years. [...] Our companies, universities need to be in a centre like that; there should be an afterschool tech-class for children to study in; a physics and mathematics school, and then they’ll be ready for our universities

Technological Sovereignty and Security in a Digital World: Solutions to Tomorrow’s Challenges
It is important to develop the technological agenda of the BRICS countries, our five countries. The BRICS has been quite successful in some areas, but in terms of technical measurement, there are still many things that need to be developed and adapted

Exporting Trust: Building Safe Global Digital Infrastructure
By now the government of the country clearly defined the course for the development of the digital economy. And why not immediately put the question of creating another model of the relationship between business and the state in the digital area

Exporting Trust: Building Safe Global Digital Infrastructure
States want to control, at least, critical infrastructure. And the more walls we build, the more we reduce to zero the most important fact about this space — that it is public
