VA Report 2014:4
Research engages Swedes
- Confidence in researchers falls
- The public are keen to be involved in the research process
- Increased uncertainty about science’s contribution to society
- Strong support for public investment in research into learning methods and nanotechnology
These are some of the results of the 2014/15 VA barometer. The VA barometer is based on around 1,000 telephone interviews with a representative sample of the Swedish population aged 16–74. The interviews were carried out by market research company Exquiro between 22 September and 5 October 2014. It is VA’s 13th barometer survey since the organisation was founded in 2002.
