Gujarat is one of the most industrialized states of the Indian subcontinent. A state which is known as the ‘GROWTH ENGINE OF INDIA’ has always been at the forefront of India’s development. This state has been contributing immensely to India’s growth story with a consistent double digit GSDP for almost a decade. Well-planned critical infrastructure, quality power, productive human capital, a conducive business climate and pro-active industrial policies combined with liberal tax structures have been the precursors of entailing Gujarat on the path of progress and development.

However, a critical and major backbone of this development has been the advancements in the field of ‘knowledge’ especially through progress in the field of science and technology. Keeping this in mind, Government of Gujarat in the year 2002 established the Department of Science and Technology (DST) for addressing the growth and development of new and emerging technology areas. DST is also responsible for formulation and implementation of key policies in this sector in the State of Gujarat.
