Throughout its history, the IESCT has participated in diverse extension activities. Among them, the institute has been part of the National Week of Science and Technology (organized by the SECyT –from 2007 onwards), the National Science Film Festival – CINECIEN and the university research and outreach project extension “The science as a teaching resource” (CIC-2009).
Since 2011 the IESCT carries out the project “Strengthening the Argentinean Network of Technologies for Social Inclusion” (Red de Tecnologías para la Inclusión Social Argentina - RedTISA) in the frame of the CREES-ICOTEA outreach program. The RedTISA aims to organize, coordinate and integrate a set of institutions and public and private organizations (universities, NGOs, labor cooperatives, research and development centers, etc.) in order to contribute to the country’s sustainable development through communication activities, capacity building and promoting the dissemination and reapplication of Technologies for Social Inclusion (TSI).
The RedTISA’s main activities are: articulating and coordinating actors, communicating actions and debates on TSI, capacity building on TSI, supporting the Sustainable Technologies Fair (FETECSO), and promoting and encouraging the adoption of TSI as public policy.
