- The set up and reference dosimetry (Lovisa Waldner, Lund University)
- EURADOS RENEB field exercise, Lund 2019: Biological dosimetry based on dicentric chromosomes (David Endesfelder, BfS)
- Novel methods of biodosimetry: Gene expression to inform short term exposures (Michael Abend, BIR)
Participation is free, but it is necessary to register. Instructions for joining the webinar will be sent after registration.

18th BfS Interlaboratory Comparison and Proficiency Testing of Passive Radon Detectors 2021
The German Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS) announces an interlaboratory comparison and proficiency testing that will be conducted for passive radon measurement devices using track-etch detectors (SSNTD, in diffusion chambers) or electret ionisation chambers (EIC) in order to assure the quality of radon measurements. The comparison is scheduled for the 1st half-year 2021.
Institutions that are interested in participating in the Interlaboratory Comparison are kindly requested to apply for participation via e-mail to comparison-radon [at] bfs [dot] de by January 29, 2021 at the latest. Please note that the total number of participants is limited. Participation is only possible after confirmation. Applicants will be informed on participation by February 12, 2021. Go to the BfS webpage for additional information.
We are a network of more than 80 European institutions (Voting Members) and 560 scientists (Associate Members). We promote research and development and European cooperation in the field of the dosimetry of ionizing radiation.
