Study into the relationship between politicians and researchers.

Politicians can greatly influence the public’s attitude to science. It matters greatly how politicians view knowledge, science and science’s role in society. An active dialogue between politicians and researchers is essential and the success or otherwise of the interaction between the two groups can have a far-reaching impact. For these reasons, the Swedish organisation Vetenskap & Allmänhet (Public and Science) has carried out a three-part study into the relationship between politicians and researchers:

It is hoped that these results will stimulate politicians to ask questions about science and also intensify the dialogue between researchers, politicians and the public.

These studies have been carried out with the support of Forskningsrådet Formas, KK-stiftelsen, Riksbankens Jubileumsfond, Vetenskapsrådet and VINNOVA. Readers are welcome to quote from these studies providing they cite VA as the source.
