The CRD ("CORE Research and Development Cooperation") is a scientific council formed by the United Nations in the wake of the First Impact. It was organized to manage the CORE and conduct experiments with the CORE crystals.

It is said to be formed by 12 members, every 2 years electing a new leader.

Although it was created by an international group, it is known to conduct inhuman experiments, involving drugs and unwilling test subjects.
