The Prime Minister will address an audience of about 30,000 scientists, researchers and students on the occasion.

The Indian Science Congress Association (ISCA) has been organising the event annually with an aim to bring together science fraternity across the world to discuss scientific innovations and researches at a common platform.

The event will also include 'Children's Science Congress' and 'Women Science Congress'. The Children's Science Congress will offer an opportunity for children in the age group of 10-17 years to showcase their innovative ideas.
