Streamlined and efficient access to the accelerator facility, especially for industrial partners, requires a precise standardisation of the beam instrumentation in terms of beam delivery, online monitoring, target station remote controlling and dosimetry. In this WP we will define and calibrate the beam delivery sensors at GSI and CERN for both material shielding and microelectronics. Dosimetry activity will include both monoenergetic ions and the full GCR spectrum characterisation.
