MERCADO, Alexis. A hundred years of Córdoba: between techno-economic imperatives and the re-elaboration of knowledge. Universitas [online]. 2018, n.29, pp.67-87. ISSN 1390-8634.

The Reform of Cordoba reinforced the social function of the university, allowing the development of its third mission (the Extension). In this article, urgent global socio-environmental problems and the situation of the productive structure of Latin America are discussed, and the most outstanding elements of the development of disruptive technologies and the emergence of the 4i are analyzed. All of them will have serious socio-economic implications for the region. The analysis of information from different sources shows that despite technological advances, unsustainable forms of production and consumption prevail. In our region, these problems are exacerbated by the predominance of an economic structure that still depends on the intensive exploitation of natural resources, which, if appropriate measures are not adopted, will worsen with the irruption of the new technological systems. This because demand natural resources that abound in the region. An effective approach of socio-environmental problems requires the re-elaboration of forms of generation of knowledge, assuming approaches that overcome the traditional ways of research incorporating diverse knowledge and social actors. It is proposed that the extension works as a conveyor belt for exchange information between communities and researchers to generate new agendas and contribute to develop spaces that allow the implementation of alternative ways of carrying out the activity. To this extent, the second mission of the university is also transformed
