All-Russia Science Festival

Volnoe Delo Oleg Deripaska Foundation and Basic Element group have been general strategic partners of the largest sci pop event, the All-Russia Science Festival since 2015. The Festival is held under the aegis of the Lomonosov Moscow State University (MSU).

All-Russia Science Festival comprises over 70 regions that host the event’s activities at the universities, academic institutions, state scientific centers, scientific hubs, museums, research and innovation centers.

Moscow Science Festival that is a part of the all-Russia events, includes interactive exhibitions in the MSU main library, sci pop events in the Expo Center, renowned scientists’ lectures in the MSU Shuvalov building as well as an entertainment program and fireworks at the Sparrow Hills.


“Education and science should always be accessible for as many people as possible at any age. All-Russia Science Festival contributes to this accessibility as it grows rapidly year by year and gives future scientists and inventors opportunities to learn about new research, listen to the acclaimed professors and make the first steps towards big discoveries. I’m honored to support Science Festival because such projects are the best way to foster a whole generation of young science-driven people who will eventually make some breakthrough and will stay in Russia’s history.”
