is a forum for conversations amongst activists and academics on issues relating to science and democracy.

KICS as an organisation and a network, mainly relies on "Sharing Sessions" by various experts and "Workshops", to carry forward the conversations on Science & Democracy, in addition to publications/reports.

Sharing session # 27 by Dr.A R Vasavi The Sharing Sessions are organised periodically with sufficient publicity (in the cities of Hyderabad, Mumbai, Bhubaneswar, Bangalore etc.), and are open to public. The speakers, including some international experts, are drawn from various fields and are not just from the KICS network.

( Full list of Sharing Sessions so far is present here.)


Along with associated members, KICS has also organised various workshops over the years. Some of these are internal brainstorming workshops, others have been for policy-influencing or for creating public debate and yet others have been project-oriented workshops. All these workshops provide a platform to enrich the discourse on Science, Technology & Society in the Indian context.
