Research looking at the UK public's attitudes to science, scientists and science policy.
Report of a study commissioned by BIS from Ipsos MORI, working with the British Science Association. It is the fourth in a series of studies looking at the UK public’s attitudes to science, scientists and science policy. It measures the trends uncovered in the 3 previous studies (2008, 2005, and 2000) and assesses progress since the first study in 2000.
The report includes:
- a summary report
- a literature review
- top line results from the 2011 study
- data tables presenting results from the 2011 study
