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.

The Future of Engineering: Presentation of the Youth Design Bureaus Programme
Could such a youth design bureau work in isolation, so to speak, from the actual production side of things? In my opinion, no. That’s because marketing, development, and production are invariably very closely interconnected in the civilian products sector. You can’t just develop a product which you’re then unable to sell to anyone. <...> Any company that understands this has marketing resources. At Almaz-Antey we have an incredibly strong team of marketing specialists who in fact determine some of the technical specifications in relation to a civilian product. And of course, a designer – a constructor – cannot work in some sort of a vacuum. From the outset, they need to immediately design the product with an eye to the specific production capabilities of the place where this item will be produced

The Future of Engineering: Presentation of the Youth Design Bureaus Programme
University design bureaus could probably be engaged in the development of civilian products for companies such as ours. However, there is again a clear limit as far as this is concerned. We are not tackling textbook problems; we are tackling specific business-related tasks. Our experience with Gazprom is one such example. They give us very clear deadlines to deliver the products in question to them. And if it transpired that for whatever reason, our team of young specialists were insufficiently qualified to meet these deadlines, we would look pretty silly in front of our customer, to put it mildly

When it comes to military hardware, I see some major barriers to the establishment of youth design bureaus. That’s because unlike the production stage, where there are virtually no secrets – it just involves regular technological processes – the development stage is above all a matter of secrecy
