This paper presents the assessment of the neutron field near the VENUS reactor, particularly in areas near the reactor shielding where operators are frequently present during a reactor run. To obtain reference spectra in the area of interest, MCNPX simulations were performed. Reference spectrometry was also performed using a Bonner spheres system. The outcome of both calculations and measurements is compared.
