opinion barometers
Opinion barometers
  • Four recent Swedish opinion barometers together cover many of the issues brought up in the French barometer
  • We have summarized the results from these barometers and the result will be published on the Swedish homepage soon
  • After evaluating the result we will decide what questions should be asked and to whom in a possible Swedish Science Generation opinion barometer during the autumn
interviews with experts
Aim

Find out views among scientists, industrialists and others concerning public opinion regarding biotechnology research and applications

Identifying important issues to discuss and to raise awareness about

Identifying national and regional initiatives to promote interest and increase awareness and knowledge

Interviews with experts
interviews with experts5
Results

There is a widespread concern that too few young people are interested in studying natural sciences and technology

Most interesting ethical and other issues were identified

A number of national and regional initiatives were identified

Interviews with experts
the swedish biotechnology map
The Swedish biotechnology map

No. of employees

No. of companies

complex issues of importance first meetings of the mobilisation channels
Concerning biotechnology research and applications

Genetic testing, gene therapy and bio banks

Production of genetically modified crops

Transgenic animals, xenotransplantation

Human stem cells, embryonic and adult

More general issues

What initiatives are there, opinions concerning these and how do the participants obtain information?

How interest and knowledge should be increased

Complex issues of importance -First meetings of the mobilisation channels
results from the first meetings of the mobilisation channels
Discussions revealed that many of the participants had not beforehand decided what they thought regarding the complex issues brought up

Concerning health related issues there were few differences between the three categories of participants

Some of the young participants were more concerned with environmental and animal rights issues where GMO and Xenotransplantations were concerned than risk issues

Results from the first meetings of the mobilisation channels
results from the first meetings of the mobilisation channels9
Results from the first meetings of the mobilisation channels
  • The most important ways to increase knowledge, awareness, and interest was thought to be through the school system and television
  • There is also a need for meetings between scientists, industrialists, politicians and other experts and the general public
  • No regional or national initiatives that we did not already know about was identified
planned activities 2003
Debates/meetings in the three, possibly four, regions between politicians/scientists/experts etc. and students/teachers/general public are being organised during the spring

Use new ways and new channels to reach people interested in actively participating in developing concrete initiatives in their region

Launch the Swedish website

Evaluate the opinion barometers

Plan for Brussels 2004…

Planned activities – 2003
