Institute of Food Research science and future governance review

April 2007

In December 2006 Council commissioned a review of the science and future governance of the Institute of Food Research (IFR).

A review panel chaired by Professor Quintin McKellar (Royal Veterinary College and a member of Council) assessed the progress made by the institute in implementing its science strategy and improving the quality of science since the last full evaluation of IFR (as part of BBSRC's Institute Assessment Exercise) in 2005. The panel went on to recommend options for future governance of the institute.
