Gujarat Council on Science and Technology (GUJCOST)


The Gujarat Council on Science and Technology (GUJCOST) was established in September, 1986, to play a catalytic role in promoting the use of Science and Technology in the development process of the State. The S&T Council was constituted with a view to develop technologies appropriate to and in harmony with present conditions. The Council has been catalyzing interaction between developers and users of technologies, by bringing on a common platform to training Scientists and Engineers on the one hand and policy makers as well as administrators on the other.

Accordingly, the State Council is identifying the areas in which Science and Technology can be applied for development activities and achieve the goals of the State, with a particular emphasis to eliminate the prevailing backwardness, rural unemployment and poverty. It was also felt necessary to establish effective Communication and other links between, and Co-ordinate the activities of centres of Scientific and Technological Research, Government agencies and industries in order to promote the application of Science and Technology in the State.

The Council is an autonomous body registered under the Societies Registration Act from 1st February, 2000 and working under department of Science & Technology. Hon’ble Minister of Education is the Chairman of the Council. The Administration and Management affairs of the state Council is inducted by the Governing Board.
