Integration of CReSA into IRTA

2 January 2015, at 12:00am

SPAIN - On 16 December, the government approved the integration of the Centre for Animal Health Research (CReSA) Foundation into the Institute for Agri-Food Research and Technology (IRTA) from the Department of Agriculture, Livestock, Fishery, Food, and Environment (DAAM) of the government of Catalonia.

Thus, the governing council has given green light to the agreement by which it authorises the global cessation of assets and liabilities, and subsequent dissolution, of the CReSA Foundation in favour of IRTA.

The CReSA Foundation was created by IRTA and the Autonomus University of Barcelona (UAB) in 1999. The aim of the Foundation was the collaboration between the UAB, IRTA, and the private sector, to promote research and technological development, studies, and education in the field of animal health, in all its aspects.

All CReSA´s capacities will be integrated into the scientific structure of IRTA. This will increase IRTA´s potential for development favouring the compliance of its mission.

On the other hand, and agreement between IRTA and the UAB was signed to ensure a continuity in the collaboration at institutional level between both entities, which to date has given good results.

CReSA´s integration into IRTA is a clear future opportunity, completely aligned with the goals of IRTA ant the UAB, which allows having a consolidated, widely recognised centre that is a national and international reference in the Animal health sector.

IRTA will continue the activities of the Foundation, as it has the capacities to integrate CReSA´s activities on animal health, while complying with the rationalisation and simplification promoted by the government in the public sector with the dissolution of the Foundation.
