Public survey on nuclear and radiological risk perception

The CONCERT European Joint Programme (EJP) for the Integration of Radiation Protection Research under Horizon 2020, operates as an umbrella structure for the research initiatives jointly launched by the European radiation protection research platforms (MELODI, ALLIANCE, NERIS, EURADOS and EURAMED). This joint research effort in key areas will help to stimulate an active dialogue with all parties with a significant interest in radiation protection.

In the context of this active dialogue, we would like to invite you to participate in the survey linked below,  aiming to gauge the perception of nuclear and radiological risk amongst a wide range of people and their opinion on related issues such as communication and information received by different actors.

It should take approximately 10-12 minutes of your time. Your results will be kept confidential and used only for research purposes. Your participation is very valuable and greatly appreciated.
