Since 1 May 1996 a three-year research project on the Dosimetry of weakly penetrating radiation has been sponsored by the European Commission. The research objectives are related to the occupational personal monitoring of photon radiation and the operational monitoring of beta radiation. The project was broken down into four work packages: personal dose equivalent chamber, beta dosemeter-spectrometer combination, extrapolation chambers and dose distribution around hot particles. The objectives of the project and the main results obtained in the four work packages after the first half of the project are described.
