National Frontiers of Science

Date

The 2019 edition of the National Frontiers of Science (NatFOS 2019) is scheduled to be held from 06th - 08th, November 2019, at Jaipur.

The National Frontiers of Science (NatFoS) series of brainstorming sessions was started in 2018 with support from the Office of the Principal Scientific Advisor (PSA) to Govt. of India, in order to create a healthy dialogue between various disciplines of science. It brings together 35-40 outstanding young scientists and engineers to discuss, deliberate and collaborate through presentations of exciting advances in one’s own field of expertise, and simultaneously learn about research at the cutting edge of other scientific disciplines.

The NatFoS 2019 discussions will explore themes of Artificial Intelligence, Marine Life, Material Science, Climate resilience, Chemistry and Behavioral Ecology. An additional session on ‘Innovations and Startups Ecosystem in India’ has been planned this year with the aim to create an additional platform to enable dialogue at the interface of academia and Industry, and to teach innovators how to think like entrepreneurs or to understand the commercials of their innovations.
