ABSTRACT
In order to guide the processes of decision-making in the public arena, it is relevant to know about the citizens' understanding of science and technology. We start by acknowledging the importance of the development and the ability to appropriate the scientific and technological knowledge framed within the bioethical perspectives and influenced by them. The proposal is contextualized within the ongoing actions in Argentina to foster science and technology by means of the project "Citizen understanding and participation with the aim of a scientific- technological culture in the province of Córdoba, Argentina", which includes aspects related to values, social and cultural beliefs and prejudices interwoven by an ethical thread. Thoughts are given in relation to bioethical aspects. We hope that the product of this research work and its derivatives become a contribution and an input for the design of a model of citizen participation that fosters the use of this research work supporting mankind.
