The Kerala Science Congress is an annual event conducted by the Kerala State Council for Science, Technology & Environment 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 world witnessed a dramatic progress in various fields with the emergence of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Several years of research in this area have delivered both expected and unexpected benefits for our society. As knowledge in nanoscience enhances, nanotechnology helps to improve products across a range of areas, including food safety, medicine and health care, energy, transportation, communications, environmental protection and manufacturing. It is being used in the automotive, electronics and computing industries, and in household products, textiles, cosmetics, medicine, food safety information technology—the list goes on. Nanotechnology is helping significantly to improve or even revolutionize many technology and industry sectors as well. Already there are over 800 products in the market that are enhanced with nanotechnology.
