CRPA, the Research Centre on Animal Production is a research and consulting organization dealing with the improvement of the livestock sector and the related agro-industry by means of researches, studies, dissemination and technology transfer actions. 

Its objectives, as set out in its Constitution, are the conduct of research and the establishment and management of services with the aim of promoting technical, economic and social progress in the livestock farming sector and promoting the spread of the most advanced forms of environmentally friendly agriculture.

In 1996 it became a joint stock-holding company with the public sector as its majority shareholder. It then transferred part of its research and experimentation activities to the “Fondazione CRPA Studi Ricerche” – FCSR (CRPA Research Studies Foundation – a non-profit organisation). The necessary staff complement and material resources were also transferred to the Foundation, although for specific projects the two organisations regularly exchange staff and administrative support.
