Public perception of biotechnology ? 2003
Languages of publication
Surveys of public perception of biotechnology were conducted in Poland, similarly as Eurobarometer in EU, in 1996, 1999, 2001 and January 2003. We have observed on increase of scepticism of Polish society in acceptance of biotechnology and biotechnology products. The majority of Poles expect the supervision of state administration and strict law regulations, similarly as in EU. In comparison to the year 2000, the support for biotechnology products has decreased in about 20%. The public wants solid information and transparence system. The knowledge of basic facts related to molecular biology is relatively high. The most wanted is capacity building program.
