The Nicolaas G. Pierson Foundation is the scientific bureau of the Party for the Animals. The NGPF’s goal is to conduct scientific research and increase public knowledge and awareness of social issues, most particularly with regard to animal welfare, animal rights, sustainability and nature.

The NGPF explores and presents alternatives that can contribute to the realisation of a more pleasant, animal-friendly and sustainable society. In so doing, the Nicolaas G. Pierson Foundation endeavours to make existing scientific research and knowledge far more accessible to the broader public and to stimulate societal and political debate on such themes. In addition, the NGPF also initiates scientific research studies itself.
