About India Science Festival:

India Science Fest is India’s largest public celebration of science and technology. They strongly feel that India needs to step up its S&T and innovation agenda, in order to keep up its economic progress and social development. The gap between science and society needs to be bridged immediately. ISF endeavors to serve as platform for deeper engagement between scientists, researchers, professionals, entrepreneurs and students. They wish to have the public involved in the latest in science and get all actors in the ecosystem to discuss, collaborate and progress together.
