TRASNUSAFE, a Project supported by the European Commission (FP7 - 249674), aims at designing, developing and validating two training schemes on nuclear safety culture for professionals operating at a high level of managerial responsibilities in nuclear installations. The first section of the paper deals with a general presentation of the Project running since end 2010, including its objectives, structure and methodology. As presented in section 2, the Project started with an analysis of the needs made by means of a questionnaire and a set of five regional workshops. Section 3 reports on the conclusions of two reflection groups organized within the “European ALARA Network” (EAN) and the “European Training and Education in Radiation Protection Foundation” (EUTERP) networks. While the first aimed to clarify the links between the ALARA principle currently used in the radiation protection community and the safety culture of the nuclear industry, the second focused on the different meanings of ‘justification’ of the radiological risk in societal and occupational context respectively, and on the implications of these findings for nuclear safety culture.
