Description

6TH ALL INDIA PEOPLES’ TECHNOLOGY CONGRESS
# 10th – 11th February 2007
# Science City, Kolkata

organised by:

FORUM OF SCIENTISTS, ENGINEERS & TECHNOLOGISTS (FOSET)

THEME:
Integration of Traditional and Innovative Technologies for Community Development

BACKGROUND:
Newer fields in scientific and technological researches are opening-up. Biotechnology, Nanotechnology, Genetic Engineering, Communication Technologies, Alternate Sources of Energy are some of the key areas where lot of researches and developmental work are going on in different parts of the world as well as in our country too. But most of them are limited to laboratory level researches and judicious implementation of the acquired knowledge for the development of the community is absent in most cases. There have been limited, sporadic efforts to integrate the traditional knowledge of the communities, which has so far strengthened the base of the human civilisation and maintained the ecological balance, with the modern scientific and technological researches.
The aim of the All India Peoples’ Technology Congress is to provide a wide platform of the researchers, the community-level workers, the technology providers, the traditional knowledge centres to exchange their ideas and experiences on the effective blending of ancient and modern innovative technologies so that the benefits of scientific and technological researches are percolated to the poorest of the poor and the nation becomes rich both in tradition and modernisation.
