The international activities of the G. Caporale Institute


The Giuseppe Caporale Institute (ICT) was founded 70 years ago in the Italian city of Teramo. The establishment is a dynamic entity that employs today about 500 professionals including veterinarians, biologists, chemists and administrative figures.

More than a third of the Institute's life has been devoted to profuse international cooperation; consisting of the mutual exchange of information and knowledge, and aiming to create cooperation networks with regard to food safety and animal welfare, as well as the monitoring of epidemiological emergencies.

The Institute's experts have hence strongly contributed to the growth of African, Mediterranean, Balkan and Latin American countries, with respect to higher consumers' health protection standards.

A balance of these international cooperation activities was presented to the Presidency of the Council of Ministers (Multipurpose Room - Via di Santa Maria in Via, 37/b) on Monday, November the 21st, at 05.00 pm.
