Roscongress Foundation to premiere a new format of innovative Science Fest

16 April 2020
Фонд Росконгресс впервые проведет Фестиваль науки и инноваций Science Fest в новом формате

24–26 July 2020 the Roscongress Foundation will hold the Science Fest. This time around the festival is trying a new format that combines online broadcasts with a virtual exhibition of hi-tech projects. Science Fest is an international event dedicated to science and innovation that aims to support young researchers, inventors, and technological start-ups.

Additionally, at the threshold of the festival Roscongress TV YouTube channel will start uploading videos dedicated to Russian hi-tech start-ups. Furthermore, Innovators 2020 will provide additional coverage for the event. The channel will focus on charismatic interesting personalities and entrepreneurs, who create breakthrough technologies that change the world. 

“The Roscongress Foundation has long been committed to developing innovation in Russia by providing young projects a possibility to present their investment potential in front of the audience made up by government, corporations, investment funds, and business angels. The Foundation has two crucial initiatives that push this agenda forward: Innovation Space project and Business Priority competition. This new reality only reaffirmed that we are on the right track. We see incredible demand for new technology in information transfer and group work, thus we made highly technological communication means a part of the very foundation of the Science Fest. I am confident the festival is to become Russia’s most significant event in the innovation field,” said Alexander Stuglev, Chairman and CEO of the Roscongress Foundation.       

The two-day programme of the festival will include an online conference, panel discussions, seminars, TED-talks, online underground concert, innovation carousel, and many other interactive communication formats. This will allow all participants – both those in the venue and observing online – to fully enjoy this unique event.

The festival will be broadcast via all Roscongress Foundation’s online resources, including Roscongress TV YouTube channel, official website and social networks, as well as information partners resources. 

Festival’s key element is the Innovative Map that will bring together inventive practices and hi-tech projects from all over Russia. Every participant of the virtual exhibition will be able to present their project via a 3D model, designs, video or photos. The project will continue the line of work started by Innovation Space, present on all Roscongress events since 2018.
