Focal Theme  

Reaching the Unreached Through Science & Technology:


India has made exceptional advances in various branches of science and has imprinted its niche as a forthcoming ‘science hub’ in general with special presence in the fields of space research, traditional and alternative medicines, computer science and basic sciences. The fruits of scientific advances need to be equally valued by each and every citizen. It is crucial that science touches, influences and ushers in a positive change among scores of individuals who were denied the comforts of scientific advancements due to multitude of reasons.


It is certainly a matter to deliberate over as to why, regardless of huge achievement in science and technology throughout this century, more than one-fourth of the world's population is still living in utter poverty with the gap between the rich and the poor still extending. We are privileged today that the current leadership in the country has been trying to accelerate development with inclusion and equality with action plans for employment generation strategies, quality health education, good governance, farmer centric issues, connectivity through Digital India and allied sectors, Swachha Bharat and Ganga rejuvenation, energy conservation, 'Make in India' through skill development besides many other plans of action. The theme of 105th Indian Science Congress, ‘Reaching the unreached through Science and Technology’ shall deliberate upon the value of taking science to each and every citizen of India.
