The FSA Strategy and Strategic Plan for 2015-20 make clear that effective use of science is crucial to achieving the FSA’s ambitious goals for protecting consumers’ interests in relation to food. The Strategic Plan sets a strategic objective for FSA that:
- we will use science, evidence and information both to tackle the challenges of today, and to identify and contribute to addressing emerging risks for the future.
The Science, Evidence and Information Strategy Delivery Plan sets out how we will do this.
It describes the vision, principles and framework for our science, evidence and information work, and a high-level narrative of the key objectives and areas of work. These are illustrated by a set of headline activities, which we will undertake to achieve and to test progress against our objectives.
The delivery plan was agreed by the FSA Board in November 2015.
