Science and research are global to their nature, and surveys on the public’s view of science and researchers are carried out in many countries.
Studies on public attitudes towards science and researchers are being carried out in an increasing number of countries. VA is following these on an ongoing basis through our networks.
- VA’s researcher Gustav Bohlin is a member of the Advisory Board for the annual Wissenschaftsbarometer conducted by the German organisation Wissenschaft-im-Dialog.
- In 2018, as part of the EU ORION Open Science project, VA conducted an international survey to investigate public attitudes to life sciences research. In this survey, citizens in six European countries were asked about their attitudes to life sciences research and genome editing.
- VA has conducted analyses of foreign attitude surveys in 2002 and 2004. Two comprehensive Eurobarometers focusing on science and technology were presented in the summer of 2005 by the European Commission. VA analysed these from a Swedish perspective and made comparisons with corresponding results from VA’s attitude surveys in 2002 – 2005.
