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 First Kerala Science Congress was organized by STEC in 1989 and subsequently organized every year by the erstwhile STEC and from 2003 onwards by KSCSTE. The event has grown significantly in quality and quantity and has gained a wider perspective over the past 28 years with the involvement of an increasing number of science professionals and students in a multidisciplinary S&T platform.
The 29th Kerala Science Congress is scheduled during 28-30 January 2017 at Mar Thoma College, Thiruvalla, Pathanamthitta District,Kerala.
