The theme of the 107th Indian Science Congress is "Science & Technology: Rural Development". The theme of the symposium will be aligned with the focal theme of the Indian Science Congress. The symposium will bring together the best of minds from industry; scientific fraternity, policy makers and academia.
As stated by our first Prime Minister, "It is Science alone that can solve the problems of hunger and poverty ....." We will have to work towards achieving this goal of harnessing science in all spheres of rural development, because ultimately the total national development would depend on the rapid progress of the rural areas. This will call for a joint effort of scientists, administrators, and local people with the full support of the political structures and nongovernmental, voluntary organizations, but a key role in this would be of the scientists, and 'challenge before the scientific community today' is to accept and fulfil this task. Much attention is needed in order to make rural India 'shine' because India cannot 'shine' without the 'shining' of rural India.
This day long symposium will feature invigorating sessions (Inaugural session, Main Session & Concluding session) on the key topics in collaboration with scientific community and entrepreneurs. The Speakers would be from the government, PSUs and leading corporate sector and would be sharing knowledge from their vast experience.
