Example text

First, members of society, including many policymakers, are trying to regulate or control science in ways they have not in many years. Second, it is contributing greatly to the tension referred to above. This overlay of values – or the conflict between science and some values – is creating a growing divide between science and the rest of society. 3. OTHER CAUSES OF THE DIVIDE This abutment of science against issues of human values is only one cause of the sciencesociety divide. Another is a fundamental misunderstanding, alluded to above, of the very nature of science and its core concepts.

Thanks mainly to European and national research programmes, all three are now among the top-10 semiconductor manufacturers worldwide whereas there were no Europeans in the top-10 in the early 90s. In this example it is essential to stress also the impact on the creation of jobs. 000 ten years ago – half in Europe, half elsewhere. Today, they employ 49,500 – half in Europe, half elsewhere. More generally, clustering in high-technology hotspots has generated jobs and economic growth. For instance, the Dresden zone has created 15,000 permanent jobs at semiconductor plants and attracted more than 30 international equipment and service suppliers.

Sciencebased innovation is central to economic prosperity, and scientific advances have contributed enormously to improving the quality of life and health. There are virtually no issues or aspects of current society that do not have some science and technology component to them. This centrality of science and technology means that in order to live full and productive lives, citizens need both familiarity and comfort with science and scientific issues. Progress in science itself, in turn, is dependent on a receptive, even appreciative society that must not only provide support for the conduct of science but must also be equipped to use the products of science in the most effective ways.
