INNOSOCIUM Foundation for the Promotion of Social Development and Presidential Grants Foundation Sign Cooperation Agreement at Eastern Economic Forum
The INNOSOCIUM Foundation for the Promotion of Social Development and the Presidential Grants Foundation signed a cooperation agreement at the Roscongress Foundation’s Building Trust Area during the Eastern Economic Forum 2019. The document was signed by Roscongress Foundation Deputy CEO and Innosocium Director Elena Marinina and Presidential Grants Foundation Executive Director Anton Dolgov.
The thematic Building Trust Area, a unique platform that unites the Innovation Space and the Roscongress Foundation’s Innosocium LAB, will be operating at the Eastern Economic Forum 2019 on 3–6 September. The main theme of the EEF 2019 is a search for new solutions to accelerate economic growth, improve quality of life, and develop business and international cooperation.
The agreement aims to continue the successful joint work that the Innosocium Foundation and the Presidential Grants Foundation have carried out to promote the development of socially significant projects and initiatives, reduce barriers for the activities of NPOs, provide comprehensive support as well as promote and disseminate best practices and technologies for their implementation.
«The Presidential Grants Foundation is actively collaborating with the Roscongress Foundation and the Innosocium Foundation. As part of the Building Trust Area programme at the EEF 2019, the Presidential Grants Foundation presented some successful initiatives that are markedly changing the life of the regions of the Russian Far East for the better. It is important to note that almost 230 social and cultural projects that have received presidential grants are currently being implemented in the regions of the Far Eastern Federal District and another 270 have already been completed. The agreement we have signed with the Innosocium Foundation at the EEF 2019 will expand the existing partnership and provide a good basis for new joint projects», Dolgov said.
«The Far Eastern region is taking on an increasing level of strategic importance, both in terms of resource support and innovative technological development. This year marks the first time that we have presented the thematic Building Trust Area on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum. As part of this platform, we are continuing our work to introduce and strengthen the social agenda and create a social ecosystem in all regions of the Russian Federation. A systematic approach to building innovative infrastructure in order to facilitate the implementation of socially significant projects in the Far East is one of the most important objectives for us. Signing the agreement with the Presidential Grants Foundation marks the continuation of joint work to support social projects within the framework of the Innosocium Foundation as well as an important step in creating conditions for successful cooperation between NGOs and representatives of business and the government», Marinina said.
