Expert-to-expert interactions in an emergency and post-emergency situation could be a somehow underrated, nevertheless crucial factor to meet the conditions and means for relevant and trustworthy information of the public. Improvement could therefore come through a better shared understanding by experts of their various positions, competencies, and roles – a mapping of which appears to be a useful tool for building this understanding, through improvement of trust and respect of diversity within the broad variety of experts involved, and through more intense, diversified and regular networking practices. Although they cannot be expected to form a consistent social group, experts understand they are sharing a joint responsibility, tied to their collective social function of bridging the complexity of a nuclear emergency and post-emergency situation with the complexity of societal needs arising from that situation. This should drive them to improved and reinforced collaboration under the shared objective of contributing to the “enlightened protection” of populations.
