The progress report of the radiation protection programme outlines the research work carried out in the year 1987 under contracts between the Commission of the European Communities and research groups in the Member States. Results of more than 320 projects are reported. They are grouped into six sectors: radiation dosimetry and its interpretation, behaviour and control of radionuclides in the environment, non-stochastic effects of ionizing radiation, radiation carcinogenesis, genetic effects of ionizing radiation, evaluation of radiation risks and optimization of protection. Within the framework programme, the aim of this scientific research is to improve the conditions of life with respect to work and protection of man and his environment and to assure a safe production of energy, i.e.: item"(i)" to improve methods necessary to protect workers and the population by updating the scientific basis for appropriate standards; item"(ii)" to prevent and counteract harmful effects of radiation; item"(iii)" to assess radiation risks and provide methods to cope with the consequences of radiation accidents.par
