1. Welcome to the 2WAYS Survey!

Please help us develop our festival by completing this joint survey with the 2WAYS project. The 2WAYS project is about developing, showing and evaluating interactive and dialogical presentations of ongoing European life science research. Science festivals, science centers, universities and research teams all over Europe participate in this groundbreaking project. Read more at www.twoways.eu.

Scientists are responsible for the misuse of their discoveries by other people
A discovery is in itself neither good nor bad, it is only the way the discovery is used which matters
The authorities should formally oblige scientists to respect ethical standards
Scientists should be free to carry out the research they wish, provided they respect ethical standards
One day science will be able to give a complete picture of how nature and the universe work
There should be no limit to what science is allowed to investigate on
Nowadays young people are less interested in science than 20 years ago

* 14. And could you please tell me to what extent do you agree or disagree with each of the following statements?

  Strongly agree Tend to agree Neither agree nor disagree Tend to disagree Strongly disagree Don't know
Young people’s interest in science is essential for our future prosperity
Girls and young women should be further encouraged to take up studies and careers in science
Science classes at school are not sufficiently appealing
Universities across Europe should become more open to foreign students
Science has too negative an image in society
If a new technology poses a risk that is not fully understood, the development of this technology should be stopped even if it offers clear benefits
If we attach too much importance to risks that are not yet fully understood, we will miss out on technological progress
