The latest success story published by SiS.net is about the CONCISE project, which is about learning about people's attitudes and beliefs about science via citizen consultations. SiS.net interviewed Carolina Moreno-Castro, the CONCISE coordinator.

The objective of the CONCISE project is to find out how Europeans build their opinions on science and technology and who influences this process. For example, which information cources and channels do citizens trust when looking for science related topics? How are citizens' opinions and attitudes formed and what role do friends,communicators, journalists, influencers, family, colleagues, religion or political views play?
