NU celebrated the National Science Day on February 28th 2023. On this day in 1928, the late Sir C V Raman, a renowned physicist announced the discovery of the famous ‘Raman Effect’ to the world. He was awarded with the Nobel Prize in Physics for this discovery in 1930.
In 1986, the Government of India took the decision to celebrate February 28 as the National Science Day. Each year a theme was announced by the National Council for Science and Technology Communication and various activities were conducted centered around the theme.
This year the theme is ‘Global Science for Global Wellbeing’ in keeping with India’s effort to take global leadership to lead us to a better and more sustainable world.
