III International Workshop on University Extension

The construction and collective communication of the university extension process is of vital importance if we consider this key strategy for transformation. Thinking, discussing, doing and evaluating are indispensable elements of university practices. The extension must be thought from this exercise, considering the particularities and complexity of each scenario with a solid social commitment of the universities.
In this context and within the framework of the IV International Scientific Conference UCIENCIA, professionals linked to training, research and development activities, committed to the extension activity are invited to participate in the III International Workshop of University Extension to be held from 5 to October 7, 2021 at the National Hotel, Havana, Cuba.
