Trusting science in an age of distrust – Results and implications from public surveys on science in Europe
In the light of current public debates about fake news and anti-expertism, survey results offer valuable insights into public perceptions of science.
Where do people get in touch with or feel affected by science? Which parts of society are in favour of science and which oppose research? And which scientific disciplines and research fields are especially distrusted by people? Based on results of different science surveys in Europe, we will discuss how to build trust in science as well as which implications can be derived for science policy and science communication on a European level.
