Following the ESF strategic reappraisal, the Life and Environmental Sciences Committee (LESC) and the Physical and Engineering Sciences Committee (PESC) are set up in 1995 to succeed the former European Sciences Research Councils (ESRC).
The LESC is responsible for a broad area of environmental sciences together with all the non-medical life sciences. That includes biology, agriculture, earth sciences, glaciology and oceanography.
in 1999 the LESC is renamed Life, Earth and Environment (LEE).
