    You can’t see, smell, or taste it, but it may be a problem…” This message rings a bell for all scientists working in ionising radiation research. There are similarities and differences between radiation and Covid-19 when it comes to communication, which need to be explored. And while it may be early to conclude final lessons from the Covid-19 outbreak for radiological risk communication, it is certainly the right time to discuss, evaluate and reflect on emerging implications.

    The SHARE research platform will host a 90-minute webinar to provide a risk communication perspective on the current situation. The aim of the webinar is to draw together insights from a variety of risk communicators and top experts on radiological risk perception and its relations to the Covid-19 context. Experts from the SHARE Platform will offer their perspectives on what we can learn from today’s situation in reference to Covid-19 and will consider wider challenges to risk perception, crisis communication and issues of trust.

    Panelists for the webinar are:
    Prof. Dr. Ortwin Renn, Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies, IAAS Postdam, Germany
    Prof. Dr. Britt-Marie Drottz Sjøberg, Department of Psychology, University of Science and Technology, Norway
    Mr. Patrick Meschenmoser, Mesh & Moser Situation Management, Austria
    Mr. Azby Brown, Citizen Scientist Organisation, SAFECAST, Japan
    Dr. Tanja Perko, Institute for Environment, Health and Safety, Belgian Nuclear Research Centre, SCK CEN, Belgium

    With additional live testimonies from: Prof. Dr. Marie Claire Cantone (University of Milan, Italy), Ms. Ombretta Baggio, International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, and observations on emerging citizen science initiatives from Ms. Joke Kenens, (PhD candidate at the Catholic University Leuven - SCK CEN, Belgium).

    Moderator: Dr. Yevgeniya Tomkiv, Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU)
