A socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions, congress, exhibitions, business, social and sporting, public, and cultural events.

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 155 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.

There are a few overarching solutions. There is the pathway espoused by Anatoly Chubais, which is to free up pension funds and diversify the portfolio so that the amount of money on offer on the market sharply increases. That is undoubtedly pathway number one. Pathway number two involves encouraging large Russian corporations – including state corporations – to make genuinely substantial investments, which I believe we could do through employing a mechanism of investment in lieu of dividends. <...> When we have state companies paying 50% dividends, then you merely succeed in circulating public finances. Let’s allow them to do something else with that money other than shuffle it between accounts in the public system, and have them investing in startups. Then corporate venture funds <...> will have plenty of investment opportunities to chew on. <...> The third thing we could do, of course, is support exports

I see the problem as coming from the other side – there is simply a lack of high-quality products that are investable, let alone bankable. There are simply no [projects] of this kind

Diversity is, by definition, the key to security and development. If we think about the long term, then traditional agriculture is extremely vulnerable to a whole range of serious challenges. The pandemic is one such example. <...> That’s why if you only have food growing in a field, you are by definition in a more vulnerable situation than if you are growing food in a container and at home. <...> Or at sea, for example

By all appearances, cultured meat will be a global inevitability. That’s because unless this happens, we will not address the climate issue in the next 30–40 years

Data in Service of the State and Society
The data we use today was mostly collected by banks, telecom, search engines and sometimes government agencies. <…> It is a tiny share – less than one per cent – of the data available today and that form the world of data. Today’s infrastructure is organizationally, technologically or physically unable to process or accumulate data around us

Who Stands to Win in the Global Competition for Supremacy in Artificial Intelligence?
First of all, there is an energetic barrier, since data mining and processing require huge amounts of energy; and this energy should be right there, where it is needed for raw data processing

The Digitalization of Healthcare: Investing to Save Lives
We have set very ambitious national development goals that have serious integrated indicators, especially in terms of life expectancy, and it would be impossible to achieve them without actual change

The Digitalization of Energy: from Local Solutions to Transforming the Industry
A fundamentally important thing is the movement of small companies, that, with large players, are carrying out experiments within the framework of the ‘EnergyNet’ roadmap, and testing these solutions; this is the route from the bottom. There are already a fair number of experiments; conclusions can be drawn, and the time has come to scale up these decisions

The Digitalization of Energy: from Local Solutions to Transforming the Industry
The biggest problem right now is that we are not able to give a forecast of consumption. We do not know whether the digital economy increases energy consumption or reduces it

Motivation should be the priority. We are even discussing that we need not a comprehensive model of competence, but rather the motivational core of competence <…> If we are going to build a rigid system, the results will be worse. Any system with given parameters will limit us

The Challenges of New Territories: Space, the Arctic, and the World Ocean
At present, the level of technological development does not allow us to reliably and safely explore the Arctic zone or explore the oceans and space

The Challenges of New Territories: Space, the Arctic, and the World Ocean
For now we aren’t even able to meet the most primitive challenges, such as the plastic pollution of the world’s oceans, for example. We see how phenomena are appearing that had been absolutely impossible in the past, such as the Great Pacific garbage patch […] We have already had a shortage of places for accommodation in a number of orbits

The Challenges of New Territories: Space, the Arctic, and the World Ocean
We have to learn how to create teams that are not bound by spatial barriers. In order to get a proper grasp of space, we need to learn how to reject space, and we need to understand where the person is who will bring about the greatest benefit in your project or on your team when implementing the corresponding project

The Challenges of New Territories: Space, the Arctic, and the World Ocean
We need breakthrough studies, bridgeheads, and competent pilots. The spatial challenge is directly related, for example, to the climatic challenge, but I think it would be a good idea to stop and think about where we are going […] Economic logic can’t be the only kind of logic for the appropriate development

Regulating the Technological Singularity: How Can We Open Doors to the New?
One of the most terrible things about this change is understanding whether singularity is upon us or not. <...> Do we create value for our stakeholders or do we still have to somehow save the world? <...> What level of responsibility do we take in the face of global challenges?

Transformation of the International Labour Market: Meeting the Challenges
In terms of the potential of the labour market, Russia is in a more complex situation than its main economic competitors. Our demographic change does not permit us to have the kinds of specialists that Europe or the USA have. Any strategy claiming that we have to do what is being done in other countries is doomed to failure. If you follow common rules, you will lose

How Russia Can Harness Human Capital for Its Competitive Advantage
The world of digital platforms <…> drastically diminishes the numbers of places on the winners’ podium.
