One of the issues of analysis of the face-to-face and virtual conclave, in which delegates from 13 nations participated, was the role of the social sciences for the integral development of a country.
In this regard, Jorge Nuñez, president of the Science, Technology and Society Chair at the University of Havana, explained that an interesting phenomenon is taking place in Cuba thanks to a significant effort to make the most of knowledge.
Not only the one we already have, but also the one we can obtain to solve the great problems of development, not only in education, but also in the field of the agricultural production and the conduction of public affairs, Nuñez said.
In all those areas, the country is making an effort to overtake innovative processes and knowledge-based transformations, in which the social sciences has played an important role.
Nuñez highlighted the attention Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel has given to the social sciences, as all knowledge in one or another way is linked to the development agenda until 2030, always under the Constitution approved in 2019.
The nation’s vision demands knowledge to maintain sovereignty, independence, democracy, socialism and thus achieving prosperity and sustainability, the expert said.
