This article debates on these questions by summarising the main findings from three European FP7 projects: EAGLE, PREPARE and OPERRA and the discussions about these findings with a broad spectrum of stakeholders at the international conference RICOMET 2015[1]. These projects aim, among other, at investigating how communication about ionising radiation in different fields could be improved and harmonised, how radiological risks are perceived, how to encourage ethical considerations in all fields of nuclear applications and what the needs are for trans-disciplinary research aimed at improving public communication about radiological risks. The projects attend to several domains; the first relates to education, training and communication, the second to nuclear emergency preparedness and response, and the third to research and development in the radiation protection field.
