Short summary
In our project, several disciplines work on issues concerning the management of high-level nuclear waste in Germany. In our sub-project on trust, we have enlisted a group of 16 citizens, reflecting with us on our research questions and approaches. From joint workshops of researchers and these citizens on the role of trust in scientists we find that participants generally want to be taken seriously. Transparent and binding rules for all participants could be the key to a trusting relationship.
