Participants about Forums
"In recent years, we have been actively talking about the digital economy and digital service and how digitalization has changed and continues to change people's lives. It is important to understand that the first area that was strongly influenced by digitalization was science. Along with the convenience and acceleration of the possibility of transmission and exchange of information, there are special problems in the digital environment, which Digital Science is focused on finding solutions for. The Russian Academy of Sciences actively cooperates with Digital Science, this cooperation is productive and we plan to continue it in the future."
Dr. Alexey Khokhlov, Forum 2018
Vice-President of Russian Academy of Sciences
"I am grateful for the opportunity to visit and speak at the forum. The reports seemed to me relevant and useful for scientists, heads of scientific organizations and universities, and even for high-tech business. I see that digital Science has come to Russia seriously and for a long time, I am sure that there are prospects for its development, I hope that the scientific community will make extensive use of its services."
Sergey Lebedev, Forum 2017
Deputy Director for Russian Scientific Foundation
"Each of the big American companies - Amazon, Google and Facebook — invests five times more money in research than the max Planck Society, so from the point of view of Russia and Europe, combining efforts would be very useful for the development of science. The future will be managed by more than one country, not one company, otherwise how can we be sure that progress and prosperity have come for all»
Stefan von Holtzbrinck, Forum 2018
President and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Holtzbrinck Publishing Group
"Digital Science Russia/CIS has organized this event with the aim to create an open dialogue where founders of emerging digital technologies and research community itself have a chance to speak with each other directly, without a medium of press or publication. We have now run second annual event and every year there is a lot of interest for, and excellent speakers at, the Forum. We are happy to partner with Russian Academy of Sciences for this Forum and exchange ideas on how science and digitalization will develop globally, in Russia and, most importantly, contextualize new digital projects toward the actual needs of the research community."
Dr. Igor Osipov, Forum 2018
DS Forum founder, CEO of Digital Science Russia&CIS and VP, Academic & Government (EMEA)

Siberian science news
Digital Science Russia and Digital Science as a global company are essentially the same thing. The Digital Science project has grown out of the holding company Holtzbrinck Publishing Group and Nature as a company of founding scientists and has been actively expanding its presence in the main scientific regions of the world for several years. The founder of the Russian Digital Science is the German information holding Holtzbrinck and the English company Digital Science. Holtzbrinck Publishing Group holding owns MacMillan, SpringerNature, the entire portfolio of Digital Science companies and a number of large assets of the STM market (STM stands for science, technology, medicine - science, technology, medicine - approx. Indicator.Ru). In terms of the total wealth of content and solutions for scientists, universities, governments, in terms of science and innovation, it is perhaps the largest global player, along with Elsevier.
