The Indian Science Congress at Nagpur will focus on scientific development in India under a feminine veil, keeping in mind women's empowerment and the changing socio-political scenario. As a result, the theme of the 108th Indian Science Congress is "Science and Technology for Sustainable Development with Women Empowerment.
The upcoming ISC is intended to honour the spirit of womanhood and women's extraordinary contributions to science and technology. Women have distinguished themselves as true forerunners, laying the groundwork for a number of innovative and niche developments and discoveries. Today, they are at the helm of a number of public and private sector institutions, successfully balancing their domestic and professional agendas. They have stood the test of time and emerged as great, learned individuals who have the ability to gain more knowledge and challenge the stereotypical norms of the erstwhile patriarchal society. However, they continue to face a number of challenges. The Congress aims to address all the key issues that are obstacles to the growth of women in the fields of science and technology.
