How science, technology and innovation can be placed in broader visions - Public opinions from inclusive public engagement activities
This study investigates how different segments of the public, with varying
degrees of interest in S&T, could formulate opinions on a broader vision
and the role they think STI should play in Japanese society through 2020
(Tokyo’s Olympic and Paralympic year) and toward 2030. We conducted
nine inclusive public engagement activities. Results indicated that the
broad public opinions did not completely overlap with officials’ opinions, a
value of “open and appropriate” was mainly found from the unengaged
public, and the visions and values based on their opinions could well be
incorporated into the official document. Engaging the disinterested in S&T
remains an issue.
