Communication role on perception and beliefs of EU Citizens about Science

Project description

Gaining a deeper insight into the public’s understanding of science

What is the European public opinion regarding vaccines? How widespread is the use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM)? Are consumers concerned about genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in their food supply? What are Europeans’ attitudes on climate change? The EU-funded CONCISE project will pose these questions to 500 citizens (representing the EU’s population of 500 million). It will conduct citizen consultations in Spain, Italy, Poland, Portugal and Slovakia. Citizens' opinions will be recorded, transcribed and analysed with a corpus linguistic software. The findings will shed light on the role science communication plays in the origin of beliefs, perceptions and knowledge concerning social controversies on science issues.
