Faridabad, January 17

“The India International Science Festival-2023 (IISF-2023) marks the celebration of the country’s achievement in the field of science. The three key reasons of cheer include the successful landing of India’s Chandrayaan-3 on the moon, the Covid vaccine development by India and the Aroma Mission,” said Dr Jitendra Singh, Union Minister of State for Science and Technology, at the inauguration of IISF-2023 here today.

The four-day IISF-2023 kicked off at the regional centre of the Translational Health Science and Technology Institute (THSTI) here today.

Asserting that India has emerged as a leader in the field as it is the first country to make a successful DNA vaccine in a short period of time, he said: “India has attained global repute with the strength of science, technology, and innovation due to the revolutionary decisions made by the present government within a couple of years.”

He said space reforms through the Public-Private Partnerships, National Quantum Mission, Anusandhan-National Research Foundation, National Geospatial Policy, and National Education Policy (NEP) had been remarkable achievements.

He said now the government’s focus is on Indian solutions to Indian problems, Indian data for Indian research, Indian doctors for Indian people, and Public-Private Participation. For this reason, he said, this edition’s theme was “Science and Technology Public Outreach in AmritKaal.”

Abhay Karandikar, Secretary, Department of Science and Technology of the Union government, said 23 countries were participating in the four-day festival. He said this event has become a beacon for scientific achievements at the national and international level.

Ajay Sood, Principal Scientific Advisor to the Government of India, said the vision of IISF-2023 is to ensure that science is found not only in books, but is also accessible to the public in many interesting and intellectual ways.

The IISF-2023 programme guide and its news bulletin’s regional-language special editions were released by the dignitaries. These editions were released in Malayalam, Bangla, Haryanvi, Bhojpuri, Hindi, Marathi and Urdu. State Cabinet Minister of Higher Education Moolchand Sharma also addressed the gathering at the function.
