Message from the Director, IISc

The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) was conceived and founded by Shri Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata, whose birthday on the 3rd of March, is celebrated in IISc as Founder’s Day. The 28th of February is celebrated all across India as the National Science Day to commemorate the anniversary of the discovery of the Raman Effect, whose discoverer, Sir C V Raman, was a former Director of IISc.

It is in conjunction with these days that, each year, IISc holds a Open Day during which its portals are open for the public to observe first-hand the activities of the Institute. This year again, the Institute welcomes you on Saturday, the 4th of March, to Explore, Experience, and Enjoy the wonders of scientific and technological research and innovation in IISc, Bengaluru.
