What do Victorians think about science?

New research from the Department of Business and Innovation’s Science and Community Unit.

Time: 5.30-7pm
Date: Tues 3 April 2012
Place: Melbourne Museum
Read the findings: http://www.business.vic.gov.au/communityresearch

The 2011 report, “Community Interest and Engagement with Science and Technology in Victoria” provides the clearest and most detailed survey yet of public attitudes and behaviour. Its findings should inform and provoke individual professionals and organisations committed to engaging with the public.

Come along to Melbourne Museum on Tuesday 3 April and hear answers to these questions:

  • Are Victorians becoming more active seekers of science and technology information?
  • How much trust do Victorians put in science information from different sources?
  • How well informed do Victorians feel about impacts of new developments and how these are being regulated?
  • Have things changed since the 2007 survey?

Come and:

  • Meet the research team,
  • Hear how others in your sector are responding to the survey findings,
  • Drill down into the data using using an online interactive data tool developed by Sweeney Research.

Presented by the Department of Business and Innovation, Australian Science Communicators and Melbourne Museum.
