Development of concepts and technology and application of principles must be aimed to societal development which naturally results in the development of a nation. Hence this component is basic in planning upon which the country’s development is installed. Application of research outcome is used to establish certain principles and concepts which in turn are involved in technological development, a most essential requirement for new inventions and hence to the nation building. The physical, chemical and biological resources available in India like healthy soil, water, sunlight, plants, animals, microorganisms etc are enormous. However, in our day-to-day life, these resources are not being utilized sustainably either due to lack of awareness or adequate technology. India as a cultural and magadiversity country, we have to utilize our resources judiciously in order to save our wealth for our future generations. Indeed farmers, self-help group and common public are the stakeholders/end users getting benefit from the research outcome who played major role in the development of nation like India.
In this background, the national level conference on ‘Reaching the Unreached Through Science and Technology’ - Concepts, Principles and Application of Science and Technology for Nation Building, organized by the ISCA, Coimbatore Chapter will be more useful for the beneficiaries like to reach the section of people to whom the benefits of science and technology has not yet reached. We hope that they will get simple technologies, tips and information in their respective field of specialization through the deliberations in the conference. Experts in various disciplines of science and technology are going to deliver lead lectures.
As part of itinerary, participants may have the field visit to Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve to observe the impact of in situ conservation of flora and fauna.
