Abstract: Progress in the field of ionizing radiation metrology achieved in the BioQuaRT project raised the question to what extent radiobiological investigations would benefit from metrological support of the applied methodologies. A panel of experts from the medical field, fundamental research and radiation protection attended a workshop at PTB to consult on metrology needs related to biological radiation effects. The panel identified a number of metrological needs including the further development of experimental and computational techniques for micro- and nanodosimetry, together with the determination of related fundamental material properties and the establishment of rigorous uncertainty budgets. In addition to this, a call to develop a metrology support for assisting quality assurance of radiobiology experiments was expressed. This report compiles the summaries of the presentations and discussions at the workshops and presents conclusions regarding the future of the field.
