The Roscongress Information and Analytical System portal has published analytical materials on the results of the Foundation’s activities. The articles that have been published are the result of cooperation between the Roscongress Foundation and a group of experts on political, social, and economic sciences from among the faculty members of St. Petersburg State Economic University, the Institute of Regional Economy Problems of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and the National Research University Higher School of Economics of St. Petersburg. They prepared 20 expert opinions following discussions at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum 2018.

In particular, materials were published on the following topics:

‘The Digital Agenda as a Factor in Increasing the Competitiveness of the EAEU’

‘Pathways for the Medicine of the Future: Who Will Treat People in 30 Years’

‘The Export Potential of Russia’s Creative Industries’

‘Making Environmental Preservation an Economic Asset’

‘Digitalization Unlocking New Opportunities in Agro-Industry’

‘Tourism Cash Flows: Exporting Tourism’

‘Forecast-2100: Technologies of the Future?’

The materials are available on the pages of specific sessions in the ‘Expert Opinion’ tab on the official website of the Roscongress Foundation. The analytical opinions prepared by experts based on the results of the business programme will be summarized as some of the substantive results from the Forum and taken into account when forming the agenda of upcoming events held by the Roscongress Foundation.

«Scientific advisory and expert interaction between the Roscongress Foundation and the Russian scientific community significantly expands the capabilities of the Foundation’s Information and Analytical System. The analysis conducted by some of the most reputable experts in the country will be useful in shaping the business programme of the next forums and in implementing the initiatives voiced during the discussions,» Roscongress Foundation CEO Alexander Stuglev said.

Organizing systematic work by expert groups that primarily aims to discuss practical issues currently facing various sectors and industries of the economy is an important focus for the development of the Roscongress Foundation. This was announced in June 2018 during the presentation of the Foundation’s Information and Analytical System at the SPIEF-2018. The system combines the best experience of global development institutions with Russian developments in information analysis and provides quick and convenient access to all the materials at the country’s largest business events organized by Roscongress. The website contains speeches, interviews, and comments by approximately 4,000 speakers as well as a rich library of analytical materials that have been created by the Foundation and leading international research and consulting companies. Information on the portal is regularly updated and supplemented.
