Innosocium Nationwide Social Project Competition is a collaborative project with the Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation supported by the Russian Ministry of Science and Higher Education
The competition aims at raising awareness about major social issues among young people and searching for new communication tools to deal with them. It seeks to inspire young talents, encourage participants to work on their skills in developing and implementing communication projects and share their best practices in the student community.
This enables students to create something relevant and thought-provoking, highlighting the most concerning social issues. It also gives them an opportunity to take part in the ambitious activities of the Roscongress, where they will present their projects to reach a wider business audience. Projects developed by student groups under the guidance of trained mentors are evaluated by the expert council of the competition made up of the rectors and department heads of leading Russian universities, government and business members and representatives of creative agencies.
Competition Coordinator Elena Marinina, vice president at Roscongress Foundation, CEO of the Innosocium Foundation.
Partners are involved in choosing the theme of the competition. Traditionally, the event focuses on women's leadership, territorial development, culture and regional initiatives. The best practices of the corporate social responsibility programmes are taking on new dimensions thanks to the Innosocium competition.
Innosocium is organising a series of Lectorium Innosocium workshops in leading universities of Moscow and other parts of Russia featuring social communication experts.
