Project DescriptionMembers of the public usually perceive any risk related to dangerous substances, accidents or terrorist attacks differently from the assessment of such situation by experts who rely on reliable scientific and technical information sources rather than on sporadic information appearing in mass media or tabloids. Thus, it is important to work with the public systematically and not contact it only in the case of emergency situations. Speakers assigned to communicate with the public have to be adequately prepared and trained. The proposed project will concentrate on the analysis of the present state in this field taking into account all major areas where large accidents or attacks (including industrial, transport and cyber fields) can occur where attention will be paid to all relevant factors of persons among members of the public, including the age, gender, education etc.). Special attention will be paid to consider to such threats as CBRN, attacks using radioactive sources, drones and IT technology.
