With the Science Barometer, Wissenschaft im Dialog (German organisation for science communication of the scientific community) has, since 2014, regularly determined the attitudes of the population toward science and research in population-representative surveys. What is the level of trust in science? What social role do science and research play in the eyes of the public? How interested are people in scientific topics and what channels do they use to find out about them?
One topic that has also been the subject of much public debate over the past year and a half is the relationship between science and politics. The Science Barometer 2021 therefore also asks about people’s attitudes and opinions on issues and processes of scientific policy advice.
