In Africa and Arab Countries, the Global Observatory works to promote research collaboration and capacity building among universities. It addresses university leadership from both regions, but also heads of doctoral schools, individual scholars and project leaders involved in bi-regional research collaboration in energy, water and sustainability, from sciences, engineering and social sciences, and last but not least, policy makers and representatives from enterprise and innovative industries related to the issues.

Our strategy is to open a sustainable process of dialogue and mutual understanding, to exchange knowledge and to increase cooperation between African, Arab and European Universities and other stakeholders in these regions.
