The Indian Institute of Science (IISc.) will be the secretariat for Science 20 (S20), which is one of the several groups or subgroups of the G20. The G20 is being supervised by India in 2023 and the theme of the S20 for 2023 is ‘Disruptive Science for Innovative and Sustainable Development’.
“India is uniquely placed to drive the agenda of the S20 forward. Historically, this land has served as an incubator for ideas in different spheres: political, social, economic, cultural, and also scientific. The list of discoveries and innovations made over the centuries reveals India’s rich heritage of scientific inquiry – in architecture, astronomy, mathematics, medicine, metallurgy, textiles, ship-building, town planning, textiles, and more,” IISc. said.
The G20 is an inter-government forum comprising 19 countries and the European Union. Consisting of both industrialized and developing countries, its main focus has been the governance of the global economy.
