About us

The Kerala Science Congress is an annual event conducted by the Kerala State Council for Science, Technology & Environment every year during the last week of January. This event provides a platform for young researchers, academicians, technologists and others across the State and elsewhere to discuss, exchange and share their research findings and technologies developed, relevant to the State of Kerala.

The outbreak of COVID-19 has impacted our nation in an enormous way, especially in public health concern which has brought social and economic life to a standstill. As the world grapples with the health and humanitarian crisis unleashed by the coronavirus, all the resources have been diverted for meeting the unprecedented crisis and the multi-sectoral impact have slowed down the economic activities of the country. The emergence of new diseases and the re-emergence of already eradicated diseases are posing great threat to Kerala.

In this backdrop, the Kerala Science Congress Committee unanimously agreed to focus on the threats and challenges on social and economic disruption, preparedness and management of epidemics and chosen “Pandemics: Risks, Impacts & Mitigation” as the focal theme of 33rd Science Congress.
