• STS Barometer/ 科学技术与社会晴雨表

    About the Project / 项目介绍

    The Science, Technology and Society Barometer (STS Barometer) is a survey on trust in scientists (experts), science communication media, open science, artificial intelligence ethics, and bioethics issues to promote science communication research. We investigate and provide data on public perceptions and attitudes toward science and technology through periodic, representative, and large-scale surveys. We warmly welcome the participation of all potential collaborators.

    • ELSI Survey of University Students in Science and Technology in China / 中国高校学生科技伦理调查

    In August 2023, the research project "Research on the Ethical Literacy and Competency of Graduate Students in Science and Technology" that I led was funded by the Tsinghua University's Graduate Education Reform Project. In January 2024, the Research Center for Science, Technology and Society at Tsinghua University conducted a ELSI Survey among university students in China. The survey sampled 60 representative universities from 147 national first-class universities. Invitations were sent to 34,069 targeted individuals across these universities, with 13,923 responses received. After screening, 5,000 valid samples were retained, including 2,403 from science and engineering, 1,602 from social sciences, and 995 from humanities; 3,009 undergraduates, 1,353 master's students, and 638 doctoral students.
