The safety of nuclear power plants is the main subject in risk analysis and risk perception of nuclear energy. The question is if a substantial increase in safety according to the classic risk analysis will lead to a decrease in the percepted risks of nuclear energy. In this report the uncertainties in existing risk analysis are dealt with. The results of public risk perception studies of nuclear power are then analysed and possible changes in the public risk perception in the case of the introduction of the HTR is dealt with. Results and conclusions are presented. 4 tabs., 71 refs.
