    Within the EC project EVIDOS, double-differential (energy and direction) fluence spectra were determined by means of novel direction spectrometers. By folding the spectra with fluence-to-dose equivalent conversion coefficients, contributions to H(10) for 14 directions, and values of the personal dose equivalent Hp(10) and the effective dose E for 6 directions of a person's orientation in the field were determined. The results of the measurements and calculations obtained within the EVIDOS project in workplace fields in nuclear installations in Europe, i.e. at Krümmel (boiling water reactor and transport cask), at Mol (VENUS research reactor and fuel facillity Belgonucléaire) and at Ringhals (pressurised reactor and transport cask) are presented.
