WOMEN SCIENTISTS DIVISION

        Science and Technology play a vital role in the development strategy in various sections of the society. Full utilization of   sufficient number of educated and trained women in Science and Technology is an economic and effective option to meet the   challenges in development. In Kerala, though the State has the highest women literates, their representation in Science career is   relatively low.
        To respond to the call for increased participation of women in Science, Technology, Engineering & Medicine(STEM), KSCSTE   has launched the Women Scientists Division (WSD). The objective of the Division is to provide an institutional framework for   coordinating and implementing various programmes so as to bring in more women into Science & Technology, thereby utilizing their   talents and potential for economic development. The key strategy of the Division is to identify and implement various schemes and   programmes that help to attract and retain women and girls in S&T fields   and motivate them to pursue career in these fields.

"Database of Women in Science in Kerala"
      The Women Scientists Division, KSCSTE has launched an online database of Women in Science in Kerala. This resourse base   directory aims to compile information on women's representation and their expertise in different areas of S&T fields at academic and   professional level.
