Project: Research capabilities for radiation protection dosimeters

Acronym 17RPT01 DOSEtrace (Reference Number: 17RPT01)
Duration 01/06/2018 - 31/05/2021
Project Topic Radiation protection dosimeters are used to assess human exposure and environmental contamination due to ionizing radiation in a variety of settings, including hospitals and industry. To meet regulatory requirements, technical services across Europe need to be established or improved for the calibration of radiation monitoring equipment. By having facilities with trained staff, emerging National Measurement Institutes could deliver the traceable measurements needed and participate in research activity.This project will develop and validate, through international intercomparisons, calibration capabilities for radiation protection dosimeters; the targeted dose measurement accuracy is 5 % or less. The emerging NMIs of participating countries will develop their technical capacity in ionizing radiation dosimetry in order to provide better measurement accuracy for end-users. Project results will also support the further development of international standards, thereby benefitting the wider scientific and industrial community.
