History of the Center

Environmental degradation does not stop at national frontiers. It can only be properly understood and controlled by means of the international action. The Research Center for Interdisciplinary Environmental Cooperation (INENCO) has a record of promoting effective joint scientific and business projects on environmental issues. INENCO is a non-profit, non-government research and consulting organization that was founded by Russian Academy of Sciences in 1989. It offers its services in the following areas:

  • Organization and implementation of international assessments of environmental quality and of the potential impact of new projects and technological developments
  • Research in the field of environmental systems modeling and forecasting
  • Development and improvement of environmentally safe technologies
  • Investigations in the field of environmentally-sound exploitation of non-renewable natural resources
  • Organization of exhibitions, workshops, conferences and symposia
  • Organization of educational programs, internships and academic exchanges
  • Organization of joint research projects between Russia and other countries.

INENCO is conducting a series of research projects within the framework of the problems associated with water, air and soil pollution.

Since 1989 up to 1992 INENCO organized three international workshops on the problems of Global Ecology.

In 1997 the International Conference " Environmental Indices: Systems Analysis Approach" was organized by Center INENCO. The International Conferences on Environmental Indices will be organized biannually.
We have undertaken research into air pollution for the St.Petersburg authorities. The Center has given guidance and scientific support to a range of companies across the country on matters relating to environmental protection.

The INENCO team includes experts in a wide range of scientific disciplines, as well as in economics and public relations. INENCO advises and assists both local and foreign organizations with advertising, trade, engineering and technical maintenance. It also assists to establish joint ventures.
