Title: 'Communication role on perception and beliefs of EU Citizens about Science'.
Coordination: UVEG.

Research Group: Biotechnology and Synthetic Biology and Evolutionary Genetics

The main objective is to learn the role science communication plays on the origin of beliefs, perceptions and knowledge concerning scientific issues. To achieve this aim, we will carry out five citizen consultations in Lisbon (Portugal), Valencia (Spain), Vicenza (Italy), Trnava (Slovakia) and Lodz (Poland), with the participation of a total of 500 citizensabout four science “hot” topics: vaccines, use of complementary and alternative medicines, climate change, food safety. The researchers aim at gaining a deeper insight into the public understanding of science and identify current science communication models.
