The main purpose of IISF is the celebration of science by all. Engagement of common people with science in a joyful and entertaining manner is essential for a healthy, prosperous and meaningful life. Through its creative programs and activities, IISF provides opportunities to people and the scientific fraternity in the country and abroad to come together, work together and experience the joy of doing science for the well-being of India and humanity.
Vision: Promotion of creativity in science, technology and innovation for prosperous India.
Mission: To engage creative and imaginative minds in India and across the globe to celebrate science through various programs and activities connected to the five pillars of Aazadi ka Amrit Mahotsav.
The journey of IISF was started with its inaugural event in Delhi in 2015. Eight editions of IISF have been organized since then in northern, southern and eastern regions of the country. The pandemic in 2020 due to Covid-19 posed a serious challenge to the conduct of this annual event, but the challenge was overcome by conducting the event on a virtual platform to maintain the uninterrupted flow of the journey.
Responsibility for conducting this mega annual event is given either to one of the departments of the Ministry of Science and Technology, viz. DST, CSIR and DBT or to the Ministry of Earth Science in rotation. Several other ministries and departments related to S&T have always been involved in the organization of the event. Vijnana Bharati has been a consistent organizing partner in the forward march of IISF.
IISF has evolved progressively through its innovative design of programs and activities connecting various aspects of life to science. Representation of the diverse strata of society in the event has emerged as a remarkable feature of IISF. The number of participants from India and abroad has grown steadily with every edition and the journey is on involving more and more people to attain the desired outcome.
