November 10 indicates World Science Day for Peace and Development which is celebrated every year in order to highlight the significant role of science in society and the need to engage the wider public in debates on emerging scientific issues.

According to an ISCA report, the aim of celebrating World Science Day for Peace and Development is to ensure that citizens are kept informed of developments in science. It also underscores the role scientists play in broadening the societies’ understanding of the remarkable, fragile planet.

World Science Day was proclaimed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 2001 and the first World Science Day was celebrated for the first time in 2002, NDTV reports.

Strengthening public awareness on the role of science for peaceful and sustainable societies, promoting national and international solidarity for shared science between countries, renewing national and international commitment for the use of science for the benefit of societies and drawing attention to the challenges faced by science and raising support for the scientific endeavor are the objectives of this day.

"Open science, leaving no one behind" is this years' theme. Open Science is a burning issue in the scientific community, which is gaining increasing attention by the non-scientific community. The United Nations says that Open Science is the growing global movement to make scientific research and data accessible to all.

Innovators, engineers, tech developers, both from private and public sectors are embracing the open science and open innovation concepts. And policy makers and citizens are increasingly embracing the concept of open science as a tool for making science more accessible, the scientific process more inclusive and the outputs of science more readily available.a
