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.

Science and the Public: New Interaction Models
Real tasks and real challenges are exactly what a volunteer project should be about. This is the picture we have of a volunteer project. First, it needs to be really scientific. Second, it needs to be somehow oriented towards the real needs of people

Science and the Public: New Interaction Models
We have taken a qualitative step forward in the sense that we have found deeper formats for involvement. After all, science volunteering and science tourism is when a person is already involved in science, becoming an almost direct participant in it

Science and the Public: New Interaction Models
Another element for the success of scientific volunteering is this kind of infrastructure... Creating a convenient infrastructure for scientific volunteering is very important. Both the scientist who forms the project and the volunteer who joins the project should not face any administrative barriers or difficulties

Science and the Public: New Interaction Models
We have discussed a lot of projects on scientific volunteering. And the most obvious ones for this are projects in the field of agricultural ecology and IT, at the interface. Because today, information technology makes it possible to significantly enrich opportunities in both ecology and agriculture. Secondly, it is accessible for everyone: in fact, you only need a computer, the Internet and you are already a participant of a large scientific project... The main message of the Decade of Science and Technology is science for life. Science needs to be as down-to-earth as possible for ordinary people to understand that today science is a key factor in the development of society, social and economic development, and technological security of the country. In this sense, such tasks are critical for this

Councils of Young Scientists of the Far East: The Scale of Regional and Federal Communication
The President declared 2021 to be the Year of Science and Technology. So, at the start of the year, we considered what aims and objectives we should set ourselves. <...> And we came to the conclusion that there were three core audiences which we should focus our efforts on this year. The first was the professional community, i.e., scientists like us. These initiatives aimed to raise the prestige of science as a profession, both in the media, and on the ground through various support measures. The second audience was made up of future scientists – senior-year school pupils, students, and parents who may have a say in their children’s future careers. <...> And the third audience was Russian society as a whole, which by the end of the year was to be made more aware of science in the country

Councils of Young Scientists of the Far East: The Scale of Regional and Federal Communication
For sure, scientists, young scientists, make up a key target audience for the entire year. Today, science is increasingly becoming a driving force in politics, and a driving force in the socioeconomic development of our country. The active role of young scientists today is of course a key phenomenon, which must be fostered further with the help of various measures

Popularizing Science: A Task for the Creative Industries or Young Scientists?
Today, a large number of scientists are returning to Russia as a result of initiatives put in place by the government. The mega-grant programme spearheaded by the President has enabled many scientists to return to Russia. These are key people at the top of their profession

Popularizing Science: A Task for the Creative Industries or Young Scientists?
The complex nature of the challenges we face are so multi-faceted that we need to involve specialists from a wide variety of fields. The pandemic is a fairly striking example. On the one hand, it has clearly been a task for medical workers and biologists. But upon greater thought, it becomes clear that it has involved materials scientists and physicists – for example, in developing innovative masks, and it has involved humanities specialists as well. Sociologists, for example, have been studying human behaviour, psychologists have been studying mental health in the wake of the pandemic, and economists have been studying how it has affected the economy. This is all very important

Popularizing Science: A Task for the Creative Industries or Young Scientists?
Today, it is vital to position science as key to socioeconomic development. <...> It is vital that we present scientists specifically as people who are helping to build the future of humanity through their developments

Popularizing Science: A Task for the Creative Industries or Young Scientists?
The answers to the major challenges emerging today lie in the work being done by scientists and researchers in their laboratories. And the most interesting thing is that the contribution made by one or another scientist to solving these big challenges is by no means always apparent

Popularizing Science: A Task for the Creative Industries or Young Scientists?
There has been mention of 70,000 [scientists emigrating from Russia – ed.]. However, this should probably be placed in context, and we should also look at how many people are returning. A figure should not be cited in isolation. Yes, it does sounds appalling, and may be accurate, but I think we should look at the situation more broadly. For example, the way I see things is that we have scientists moving equally in both directions
