Administrative / biographical background:
The Interactive European Network for Industrial Crops and their Applications in the Changing Millennium (IENICA) project aimed to extend interaction and interchange of information through a network linking key individuals from industry in particular to government and scientists in the EU. Its aim was to achieve enhanced technology transfer and market orientation in order to extend sustainable and economically viable non-food products from plants. The Central Science Laboratory were project coordinator, financial auditors and managers.
The Central Science Laboratory (CSL) was officially launched in 1992 as an Executive Agency of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAFF). In 1994 a larger agency was created from merging CSL with the Food Science Laboratories of MAFF’s Food Safety Directorate. CSL was responsible for the delivery of science in support of Government objectives. A new facility which brought together all of the previous laboratory facilities was created at Sand Hutton in York in 1996. In 2009 a new Food and Environment Research Agency was launched at the Sand Hutton site.
