Early History of the Academy

A convention of scientists and technologies of West Bengal was held on 29th April, 1986 in the auditorium of Indian Institute of Chemical Biology (IICB), Kolkata to consider the question of forming an Academy of Science in West Bengal. Out of prolonged discussion, the house decided to form such an Academy and constituted an ad-hoc committee, with Professor Sushil Kumar Mukherjee as the Chairman, to take necessary steps to give effect to this decision in a general meeting on 20th January, 1989 in the auditorium of IICB, the formation of the Academy (WAST) with 136 Founder Fellows. The first elected Council of the Academy, with Prof. S.K. Mukherjee as President, Prof. S.C. Pakrashi and Prof. R.K. Poddar as Vice-Presidents, met on 24th August, 1989 to elect office-bearers. The Academy then was registered as a Society (S/65001 to 1990-91). A new Academy entitled "West Bengal Academy of Science & Technology" was thus born.
