India celebrates National Technology Day as a symbol of quest for scientific inquiry, technological creativity and the translation of that quest in the integration of Science, Society and Industry. This day is also celebrated to honor technological innovations and their successful commercialization which makes the fruits of research reach people at large.
Tech for Seva (TFS) was established in 2013 with the objective of providing an integrated platform for inclusive development in the society. “Tech” meaning Technology and “Seva” means selfless service for the greater good of the society at large. Technology can be defined as science applied to practical purposes, and when it is applied for the greater good of the masses it is referred to as Seva.
TFS is a facilitator for the major fraternities of social change – Corporate, Scientific and Research Institutes and NGOs, primarily aiming at reaching technology to the weaker sections of society so that they derive benefit in terms of quality education, reduced drudgery, enhanced income and in general an improved quality of life.
Using technology to improve areas as diverse as health, environment, education, livelihood might be a dream of many but most lack the resources to achieve their dream. We at TFS aim to catalyse, the creation and use relevant technologies for a desirable future for all of us.
TFS as an integrating platform has been visualized by stalwarts who have played a catalytic role in addressing social issues in its many dimensions by promoting scientific and technological innovations for social upliftment. The TFS Conference of 2014 aims at opening a gateway for partnerships among the fraternities aiming at an inclusive development while ensuring economic advancement.
A Conference is being held by TFS in the month of December 2014 with the aim of providing an interface between the S&T Institutions (the Scientific Solution Providers) the Corporates (CSR) (the Resource Providers) and the NGO’s (the the Social Change Agents).
