Solan, February 23
The inaugural Himalayan Science and Technology Conference (HiSTCon) 2023 will be held on April 29 and 30 at Shoolini University. The focus of this conference is Sustainable Development in the Himalayas and the Role of Science and Technology in achieving this goal. The conference will bring together scientists, academicians, students, and entrepreneurs working towards the sustainable development of the Himalayan region.
HiSTCon 2023 will be a momentous event in the field of sustainable development, with keynote lectures and panel discussions based on six themes: Healthcare and Health Systems, Food and Zero Hunger, Biodiversity Concerns, HimVirsa (cultural and natural heritage of the Himalayas), climate crisis, and science for farmers and tribals.
The Himalayan region is a critical part of India’s ecological and environmental heritage. However, it is under threat due to several factors, such as climate change, natural disasters, and population growth. The conference aims to address these challenges and promote sustainable development in the region through scientific and technological innovations.
The HiSTCon conference presents an opportunity to students, researchers, healthcare professionals, NGOs, non-profit organisations, and corporate delegates to present their ideas through posters and/or oral presentations. The conference offers a unique platform to exchange ideas, make connections, and nurture research and entrepreneurial activities.
