The research brought together an international team to analyse the Eurobarometer survey on attitudes towards biotechnology conducted in 1999.
It investigated how public perceptions of life sciences had evolved during the 1990s, using the 1993, 1996 and 1999 Eurobarometer surveys; it contextualised the findings of EB99 and the time series data with parallel data on media coverage and policy-making in each of the participating countries. Furthermore, a series of comparative case studies analysed key themes in the development of life sciences in Europe.
The work was conducted in three phases:
02/2000 - 01/2004
