The Innosocium LAB is multi-format platform for holding events and discussions with a social focus in partnership with key social development institutions. It is a cornerstone project by the Roscongress Foundation for highlighting best practices in the social sphere across Russia’s regions.

The Innosocium LAB’s mission is to ensure that social themes continue to be covered at Russian business forums, and to improve collaboration and trust between the public, private, and non profit sectors.


The Creative Business Forum is a separate event that will be held as part of SPIEF 2021. It will bring together creative visionaries, business figures, and government representatives, who will discuss key issues facing the creative sector. The Forum will take place on the start day of SPIEF, and will continue at a thematic discussion area over the following three days.

Topics for discussion will include fostering the development of the sector to help drive national and regional economic growth, education, human capital and fostering young talent, the impact of digitalization on the cultural sector, the role of women in the creative economy, and protecting intellectual property. Correspondingly, the development of the creative industries will be viewed as integral to the social agenda, and key to people’s identity and quality of life.
