Scientific Agendas and Permanent Work Tables: two emerging concepts that summarize a position of science constructed over three decades of Participatory-Action-Research from CONICET and UNLP of Argentina. It is a science that, surpassing positions of status quo and allocating time for criticism, seeks to produce Theories of Transformation referring to possible territories. Two cases in progress, in an informal urbanization and in an industrial and residential flood zone in La Plata, Ensenada and Berisso, Buenos Aires, Argentina, give meaning to two Agendas with their respective Tables: "Puente de Fierro Possible Territory" and "Territory, Industry and Environment". The objective is to execute a science that brings closer the wishes of people with public policies in cases of high exemplary and replicability. The work is organized in three parts -what science, what agendas, what praxis- and a conclusion.
