The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, 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, 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.

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.

The Frontiers of Humanity as Defined by Science and Life
The pandemic has shown that the end goal is to maximize people’s wellbeing instead of maximizing the GDP. This is why the economy gets sacrificed for saving lives when it is needed, and the society is ready for that. <…> On the other hand, <…> people are a production factor and a resource. <…> On par with technology, human capital is among the most important things,

Open Government 2.0: What is the Right Policy Prescription for Russia?
When it comes to communicating data, you need to know who your target audience is. <…> There is general public – average people – who needs to get comprehensible information. <…> Yet, there are experts. <…> In the latter case, aligning information is important. Now, if you compare the data from various ministries, you can come to all sorts of conclusions. <…> Frankly speaking, there is another category – these are subject-matter experts that do not work for the government. These are academic experts, university researchers and maybe certain journalists that may find it useful if more information were disclosed. Now some data cannot be made public due to laws and other things. It should be limitedly disclosed. <...> It would be a good thing, because independent experts can come to in-depth conclusions that will eventually be useful for ministries and agencies

Open Government 2.0: What is the Right Policy Prescription for Russia?
After all, the trust people place in government is the key mechanism that affects macro levels and economic growth. <…> Trust is truly important. The trust people and businesses place in government, as well as the trust government has in business. Russia’s unique feature is a low level of trust. It is a huge problem. Academic research prove that it is the country’s major flaw. If you take the level of trust in Russia up to the one in Sweden, the GDP will gain additional 60%. <...> Then we would just have to maintain its sustainability. This is why trust cannot be underestimated. <…> It exists when there is transparency, when it is clear what rules are set and why. It boosts the trust

Open Government 2.0: What is the Right Policy Prescription for Russia?
Economy and government openness and their impact on the economy are actually supported by a whole range of academic research, which shows that openness is an important component of government control. This is an aspect of government control quality, which has a huge effect on economic growth in various countries

Are Inflationary Trends in the Global Economy a Sign of Growth, a Result of Deglobalization, or an Indication of an Upcoming Crisis?
The temporary surge in inflation is entirely dependent on inflationary expectations, on how much people trust the monetary regulators. <...> Now, in contrast to the period of stagflation, the monetary authorities precisely understand that they have a mandate to curb inflation, and they have independence. In countries where their independence is maintained, inflationary expectations do not respond to the temporary surge caused by recovery from the crisis. <...> Where the independence of the central bank is threatened, as in Turkey, for example, we see high inflation and high inflationary expectations

Quantum Challenge for the Future
The quantum revolution is the most optimistic of all previous technological revolutions. Quantum computers will expand the possibilities available to humankind — this is the main difference of the quantum revolution. Quantum technologies will add to humans’ abilities. It will all start, probably, with financial services. New materials will be created. The ability to predict the behaviour of separate molecules will help cure cancer

Science and Society: A Strategy for Future Generations
We have discussed the problem of trust between society and science, but I believe it is not the problem. There is trust, but there is no interest. At this stage promoting science means explaining the importance of science to people that are not involved in science, explaining its importance for them, their lives, and the lives of their future children
