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 162 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.

APEC CCHE’ 10th Anniversary: Achievements and Prospects
We have approved a special algorithm and opened our doors to all foreign students [...] which is fundamentally important, because last year many foreign students experienced tremendous difficulties in organizing distance learning

APEC CCHE’ 10th Anniversary: Achievements and Prospects
The pandemic has hit foreign students very hard. [...] And today, part of the competitive advantage of a university lies in its ability to provide quality education in general while also providing very comfortable and safe conditions for being on campus

APEC CCHE’ 10th Anniversary: Achievements and Prospects
We need new teaching methods. New digital teaching methods because [...] there is much more remote, distance learning taking place here now. The transition to a digital format required different skills from teachers, and we understand that this incorporates a completely different teaching method. What kind? This is still up for discussion. […] It is necessary that we present knowledge in a different way and build relationships with the student in a different way [...] It is impossible to work entirely remotely, since this leads to a significant deterioration in the quality of education

APEC CCHE’ 10th Anniversary: Achievements and Prospects
The main topic of the conference today is a transformation […] of the system of higher education in the face of the constraints that are emerging due to the coronavirus pandemic. [...] After a year and a half, we can say that the system of higher education in Russia, and in the world in general, has managed to cope with this challenge, largely thanks to leading universities, and has grown stronger

Network of University Campuses – Russia's Intellectual Belt
[They need to work together] on the campus construction project itself. The first key point is that we not do them without regions. You should see that the federal and regional authorities are always close by

Network of University Campuses – Russia's Intellectual Belt
Maintaining and operating campuses is a huge job and [requires] special skills. For some reason, we think that building them is a major task and then it will all be somehow managed on its own. No. During the next stage, the ministry, together with our colleagues from banks and development institutions, will carry out a lot of work to train management teams, including using the experience of the best Russian universities in campus management

Network of University Campuses – Russia's Intellectual Belt
We don’t think about these campuses in the same logic as social security, when we take public money, build and then load all this infrastructure on the shoulders of universities and say: ‘Now deal with this’. No, we held discussions with [acting Khabarovsk Territory Governor] Mikhail Degtyarev about how this is a distinctive feature of the new generation of infrastructure policy. We are building them with multichannel financing and the use of private funds

Low-carbon Development and Climate Policy: Opportunities for Russian Businesses on the Global Decarbonization Agenda
The first serious, large-scale problem facing our country is the creation of a non-discriminatory system to assess the balance of greenhouse gases. The project that we launched [a pilot project to create testing sites in several Russian regions to calculate the carbon balance, where research will be carried out to create technologies to monitor and analyse the ability of territories to capture and store carbon from the atmosphere] is actually very small-scale – it’s only seven regions with carbon testing sites so far […] We have joined efforts with a huge number of universities and institutes. Their efforts were disorganized: some of them were working with image processing, some with agricultural technologies, and some were researching forests. All this needs to be united to create an independent assessment, a carbon control system [...] It turned out that we don’t have ready-made solutions, but we cannot borrow them, and such a system must be scientifically grounded. Since science is international, it must not only be recognized within the country. It should above all be understandable for our partners, for those who are already to conduct relevant research in other countries. And ideally, of course, the system used to independently assess the carbon balance should be adopted by our colleagues in associations at the very least, perhaps within the BRICS

Low-carbon Development and Climate Policy: Opportunities for Russian Businesses on the Global Decarbonization Agenda
Tectonic shifts are expected in the economy, in the organization of business, and in technological development. I would like to point out to everyone that all the problems on the climate agenda – and we are not yet fully aware of this – will have a significant impact on the content of education

National Technology Initiative Olympiad: A Social Lift for a Team of Technological Breakthroughs
A modern university is inconceivable without the function associated with the transfer of knowledge to technology. They are very closely connected, not the same thing, but very closely connected to the entrepreneurial culture, to training. Given that universities today are actively connecting with public schools, it would be wrong not to interact with schoolkids and miss on an opportunity to create self-fulfillment for kids who would like to achieve something great while in school. We should not miss a chance to create opportunities for them to express themselves and try entrepreneurship

Big Challenges and New Partnerships: How to Unite Science and Society
We are looking at what to do so that as many students and schoolchildren as possible become researchers. There is no royal judgment. [...] Apparently, we need to work on the content and make the language itself accessible and work on the interfaces
