Our time is the time of the "smart"


"Smart" devices and things quickly come into our lives making it more comfortable and interesting. Even yesterday, "smart" house was the epitome of high technology, but today it is online training, business analysis, "smart" environment, "smart" government and "smart" city that are at the top of the emerging trends discussion.

"Smart" is not just technology, it is the transformation of the social model. The intellectual capacity of the human multiplied by the power of technology and converted into Collective Reason becomes the foundation of the modern society.

The Main Objective of the Congress
The congress aims at considering both conceptual issues and practical implementations in the field of "smart nation" development. Under the "smart nation," we understand the national effort to co-create a future of better living for all citizens through maximum use of knowledge and technology.
Key Issues for Discussion
The digital age has not only brought new communication tools into our lives but has also become a driver of self-organization, both in business (teal organizations and the exponential growth of startups) and in public life (the unprecedented growth of non-profit organizations and various communities). Is it a coincidence or a natural trend? What tools are necessary for the development of self-organization? How to make digital tools more human, socially-oriented? These and other issues will be discussed at the SMART RUSSIA Congress in 2021.
