Rayat Shikshan Sanstha, established in 1919 by Karmaveer Bhaurao Patil, is one of the leading educational institutions in India. Karmaveer, a great humanitarian, realized that only education can end the misery, ignorance and enlighten the lives of many . He laid the foundation of Sanstha with a noble purpose to provide education to the down-trodden, the poor and the ignorant class of society. He offered a precious solution to the economic stresses by introducing 'Earn and Learn Scheme' for the needy students from economically and socially depressed classes of society. He was honoured with the "Padmabhushan" by Government of India for his enormous educational work.On the occasion of centenary year of Rayat Shikshan Sanstha ,Yashavantrao Chavan Institute of Science College , Satara organizes this International Conference on Multifunctional and Hybrid Materials for Energy and Environment
Our institute Yashavantrao Chavan Institute of Science is an Autonomous Institute with A+ grade of (NAAC), recipient of Academic Excellence Award by Shivaji University Kolhapur and one of the lead colleges in the proposed Karmaveer Bhaurao Patil Cluster University, Satara approved in the Project Approval Board of RUSA, Ministry of Human Resource Development, and Government of India. The institute offers UG and PG programs in Basic Sciences as well Professional Science. This is leading institute of science in the country; the students from Kerala to Jammu-Kashmir are enrolled in the institute. There are about 3800 students for UG programme, 400 for PG and 90 students are enrolled for Ph.D. in the institute. The institute belongs to parent organization Rayat Shikshan Sanstha, one of the largest educational institutions in the continent of Asia.

On the occasion of centenary celebration of our organization and as a tribute to our founder, we have planned to organize an international conference on "Multifunctional and Hybrid Materials for Energy and Environment (MHMEE-2020)". MHMEE-2020 is a platform for the international scientific community to exchange, discuss, debate and study various aspects of energy generation, storage, transportation and distribution through solar cells, supercapacitors, batteries, fuel cells, energy materials such as multifunctional materials and hybrid materials. The use of nanomaterials for drug delivery, gas sensing, magnetic materials for communication, water splitting and purification, catalytic and antimicrobial activities etc.
The Department of Physics, Yashavantrao Chavan Institute of Science, Satara has taken an initiative to invite renowned specialists working in this area of multifunctional and hybrid materials for Energy and Environment across the globe to share and exchange their research findings / innovations among the peers. The conference will be helpful to students, research scholars, faculties and many more stakeholders from the perspective of creating awareness about thrust issues like Energy and Environment.
