Science Fest Science and Innovation Festival launches Knowledge Marathon

9 June 2020
Фестиваль науки и инноваций Science Fest запускает «Марафон знаний»

Viral videos about digital technologies with the power to change the world, flash clips about science and world-famous inventors and scientists, livestreamed interviews with entrepreneurs and innovators: all of this and more will feature in a new project developed by the Roscongress Foundation, the Innovation Space and their partners for the Science Fest Science and Innovation Festival. The new format will see exciting online content hosted on the Festival and the Roscongress Foundation’s social media pages as well as the platforms of the Festival partners.

The symbiosis of next-generation content with online conferences, lectures and interactive workshops, all of which are by now well established, will form a key element of the Science Fest programme. “One of our main objectives is to build a community of like-minded people who, like us, love science and everything that contributes to the development of our planet. We looked very carefully at what young people are interested in today and what excites them while developing the Festival concept. Based on what we found, we have prepared a great deal of high-quality and attractive content that will be available to everyone,” said Science Fest project creator Dmitry Sryvkov.

The content will be uploaded to the Festival’s social media pages on various platforms in several clusters, including ‘top 10 innovations’, long reads, video reports on innovations at Russian and international companies, interviews on interesting topics with company heads and representatives of the departments responsible for scientific developments and digitalization, reports on the activities of leading universities working in this area, lectures and workshops led by extraordinary speakers and innovative thinkers inspiring developments in robotics, design and prototyping, as well as live broadcasts and streams in which audiences will have the chance to participate directly. All of this awaits participants of this unique ‘knowledge marathon’.

Science Fest will launch the format on a year-round basis, and anyone is free to get involved at any time, simply by picking up their smartphone or tablet. The project will bring together young scientists, developers, engineers, designers, entrepreneurs and all lovers of cutting-edge technologies, who will be able to freely share scientific knowledge, digital know-how and a unique atmosphere of engagement with an exciting subject. Science and innovation are closer than ever before.

 Science Fest will be the first project of its kind in the Russian online space. The Festival’s content will be aired on the Roscongress Foundation’s online platforms, including the Roscongress TV YouTube channel, the official website and social media, as well as the online platforms of the Festival partners.

 The time for change has come!
