Investigating Public Trust in Expertise

In a world increasingly relying on knowledge and scientific evidence, trust in trustworthy expertise is essential to achieve progress and well-being. We need experts to help policymakers and citizens take the correct decisions in important matters such as health or climate change.

PERITIA is an EU-funded project investigating public trust in expertise. Our multi-disciplinary team seeks to help citizens and policymakers learn to trust trustworthy expertise. By doing so, we aim to enhance trust in a better democratic governance for the future of Europe.
