Welcome to the OBREAL Global African Chapter

The Chapter Africa of OBREAL Global is coordinated by SARUA and arises from our organisation’s relationship with the African continent.

Over the last few years we have had the honour to participate in the HAQAA (Harmonisation, Quality Assurance and Accreditation in Africa) initiative and to coordinate the second part of this European-African initiative together with our members and strategic partners.

It is in this context that the African, and not only African, members of OBREAL Global have decided to create the Chapter Africa with the idea of deepening the main objective of our organisation: the South-South-North cooperation.

Coordinating and Featured Institutions 

These are the coordinating institutions of the Africa Chapter since 2020.
