About Us

The 2045 Initiative, organizers of the GF2045 congress, was founded by Russian entrepreneur Dmitry Itskov in February 2011, with the participation of leading Russian specialists in the fields of neural interfaces, robotics, and artificial organs and systems. The goals of the 2045 Initiative are the creation and realization of a new strategy of development of humanity which meets global civilization challenges, creation of conditions for the spiritual transformation of humanity, and the realization of a new future based on five principles: spirituality, culture, ethics, science and technology. The key project of the 2045 Initiative, the Avatar Project, seeks to create technologies for transferring one’s personality to a more advanced non-biological carrier, and extending life to the point of immortality. The organizers devote particular attention to enable a truly collaborative dialogue between spirituality, science and society. The Second International Global Future 2045 Congress is open to the public. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit: www.GF2045.com
