The convergence between Science, Education and Citizenship proposes a disciplinary diversity that, in not few opportunities, lead to a fragmented heap of good intellectual intentions. Especially, to think some aspects as for the social development and distribution of the knowledge, as dynamic element that it induces the relation between these three large categories, it would imply a particular vision to the moment to articulate definitions that allow to identify (general) lines in order to orchestrate and to manage public policies in science and technology (C&T). To this respect, the present work proposes to approach from a critical perspective, since these articulate categories and his incident in relation with the perception of the scientific advances and technological innovation, on the part of the citizens, considered these as political subjects. Principally, from the convergence of questions that they have to see with such concepts as: democratization of the knowledge, uncertainty and risk, and the participation of the University in its social dimension. The latter, as the institution in which most of science is generated in Latin America.
