Abstract

The public perception of science in Croatia does not work in favour of science or scientists. The statistics show that although scientists still deserve the major respect and trust of the public, most of the people still do not know what the 'use' of science is. Our public is completely unaware of the crucial role of science for the development of sustainable economy. Decision and opinion makers are a major part of this public. The public is their electorate. How can we expect them to invest in science if these investments don't bring them votes?
