About Us

Bharatiya Vigyan Sammelan (BVS) is a flagship program of Vijnana Bharati initiated as a vehicle to reach the masses in the pursuit of popularising science and technology and to facilitate interactions within common people and scientific fraternity.

BVS is a conglomeration of scientists, artisans, technocrats, traditional innovators, students and common people planned once every two years. It has become an excellent platform to bring together whoever contributes to science and has become a new definition and identity in the field of scientific seminars and symposiums.

To date, five Bharatiya Vigyan Sammelans have taken place starting from Bhopal (2007), Indore (2009), Jalandhar (2012), Panaji (2015), and Pune (2017).

BVS aims to provide a channel of communication between traditional and modern sciences with the prospects of communicating in any Bharatiya regional language and not restricting to only english as the preferred language for scientific expression.

BVS wishes to champion the cause of Bharatiya heritage with cordial synthesis of natural and spiritual sciences; and to motivate young scientists towards greater creativity and originality.

We have had 5 Sammelans so far…
Bhopal, Indore, Jalandhar, Panajim, and Pune
