    The survey aims to gauge the perception of radiation risk amongst a wide range of people who are not radiation specialists and their opinion on information that would be helpful to a general audience to understand radiation risk. The first part of the survey includes a section about the responders’ personal information, their attitude towards science and technology, their satisfaction towards the actors in the radiation protection domain and the actions undertaken by RP authorities, their opinion towards the communication channels about radiological risk. Fig. 1 shows the question about benefits and detriments. In the second part of the survey, specific sections are addressed to particular categories of people such as professionally exposed persons, medically exposed patients or people with a cultural interest for radiation protection issues (such as journalists or students). The strategies adopted to raise awareness and encourage responses in Italy will be presented together with the preliminary analysis of the results.
