The Kerala State Committee on Science and Technology came into existence in 1972 as a wing of the Department of Planning and Economic Affairs, Government of Kerala. The Committee was reorganized and expanded as “Science, Technology & Environment Committee” (STEC) in 1984 and finally to the present Kerala State Council for Science, Technology & Environment (KSCSTE) in 2002.
The Kerala Science Congress was commenced by STEC in 1989 and carried forward by the Kerala State Council for Science, Technology & Environment. The event has grown significantly in quality and quantity and has gained a wider perspective over the past 31 years with the involvement of an increasing number of science professionals and students in a multidisciplinary S&T domain.
The 32nd Kerala Science Congress is scheduled during 25-27 January 2020 at Yuvakshetra Institute of Management Studies, Mundoor, Palakkad District, Kerala.
