what we do

Three areas of interest


Innovation can and must be promoted by all Higher Education Institutions (HEI) even if they lack the resources to conduct ambitious research. By emphasizing the role of innovation, HEIs can also become development agents and establish a link between the national and international perspectives, opening their participation in the implementation of internationally funded cooperation projects.

Tertiary education, Institutional and policy development

This broad category embraces several themes that are essential to shaping the development cooperation agenda. In a particular way with flexibilization and digitalisation of learning, quality assessment and quality standards, evaluation, and frameworks. And with a broader view it tackles the role that HEI have in regional integration processes, which is precisely the specialisation of OBREAL.

Sustainable development

The contribution of the higher education sector to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals consolidation engaged universities models to target present and future challenges related to employability, production, and citizenship.
