Many challenges faced by the people and society are global in nature and are not limited by any geopolitical boundaries. Some of these common challenges can be met collectively through the application of Science and Technology. Towards our efforts to serve the society by leveraging collaborations with our key partner countries, a Science & Technology Minister’s Conclave is planned to be organized in the IISF-2018. This gathering, with the theme “International Collaboration for People-Centric Science”, will provide us an opportunity to exchange the scientific and technological priorities and challenges with the partner countries. It will add new dimensions to our cooperation agenda especially for addressing unmet societal needs through the application of Science, Technology and Innovation.
