Therefore, the general aim of EB is to know the attitudes and evaluations of European citizens about large general themes. The questions concern to the European integration issues, but sometimes they regard also specific problem about single country or common problems of economic, political or social nature.
The arguments of Eurobarometer 95.2 are as follows:
- European citizens’ knowledge and attitudes towards science and technology: sources of information about developments in science and technology; categories of people and organisations best qualified to explain the impact of scientific and technological developments on society; overall influence of science and technology on society; areas that will be affected most by research and innovation in the coming years; attitudes towards scientists; personal commitment to science and technology.
