An Autonomous organisation to popularise Science and Technology in Karnataka



Genesis of Karnataka Rajya Vijnana Parishat (KRVP)

As early as 1977, Karnataka State Council for Science and Technology (KSCST) identified a project on "Popularisation of Science". Prof. M. A. Sethu Rao, the then Joint Secretary of the KSCST initiated the project as its convener. The objectives of the project were two fold:


To bring together several individuals and groups in Karnataka already engaged in tasks of popularisation of Science.


To publish a science monthly in Kannada (Bala Vijnana).

These objectives were fulfilled and Karnataka Rajya Vijnana Parishat (KRVP) was founded in 1980 as an autonomous registered society started with 25 units in the beginning and now it is an organisation of about 500 units, 4 large science centres and 42 small science centres spread across the length and breadth of Karnataka. Activists and promoters of KRVP include scientists, teachers, administrators, doctors and other professionals.
