Roscongress Foundation’s Social Platform Innosocium Foundation to Support 4th Regional Social Innovations Forum
Moscow hosted the 3rd Regional Social Innovations Forum in June 2019, which served as a major platform for the discussion of social problems and the presentation of breakthrough technologies for the innovative development of the social sector and the best social practices in Russia’s regions. Almost 180 leading experts from Russia, Europe, the United States, and Asia delivered speeches over the course of 65 discussions and open lectures. Some 35,000 guests and participants were involved in the Forum’s exhibition and business programme.
In 2020, Yelena Marinina, Deputy CEO of the Roscongress Foundation and Director of the Roscongress Foundation’s social platform, the Innosocium Foundation, joined the Organizing Committee of the 4th Regional Social Innovations Forum, which is headed by Chairwoman of the Russian Federation Council Valentina Matviyenko and Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin. The members of the Organizing Committee include representatives of business and government agencies, such as: Russian Minister of Health Mikhail Murashko, Russian Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Gulnaz Kadyrova, Russian Pension Fund Chairman of the Board Maxim Topilin, and Sberbank President and Chairman of the Board German Gref, among others.
The Forum culminated with final recommendations to the Federal Assembly, the Russian Government, and all of Russia’s regions. “Participating in preparations for such a large-scale and representative Forum is a great honour, but it is also an acknowledgment of the increasing role that the Innosocium Foundation is starting to play in the state’s social agenda”, Marinina said. “We have already accumulated vast experience in promising and effective practices, the Foundation has serious international clout, and it is essential for us to be able to utilize this potential at various levels and make it accessible to specialists and concerned parties in all corners of Russia”.
