It took the Eurobarometer study a year ago – and the media coverage of the results, which was fatal for Austria – to change politics and science in Austria, at least this time around. Because in 2010 the results for Austria were already as bad as in 2021, but they were not taken seriously by those responsible for politics and science at the time. Now at least the Ministry of Science and research institutions are aware of the problem – and want to do something about it.
