Welcome to the OBREAL-Global Indian Chapter
With the launch of the National Education policy 2020, internationalization of Higher education has come to the forefront of discussions. The COVID pandemic has also fueled this as we see a lot of collaborations between Indian and Foreign universities being active. This has lent credence to the ongoing collaborative activities of a few OBREAL-Global HEIs members like Symbiosis International (Deemed University)- SIU Pune, Indian Institute of Technology-Madras, Chennai, Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru, Asian Institute of Design, Bengaluru, and National Institute of Technology Surathkal, with OBREAL-GLOBAL Secretariat, headquartered in Barcelona, Spain and some of OBREAL-GLOBAL European members (KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden).
Based on the successful implementation of several EU-Indian projects conducted during the last six years (MIELES, EQUAM-BI), this group of HEIs has agreed to come together to establish the Chapter India of the OBREAL – GLOBAL Observatory.
The initiative, that will count on the support of European, African, Arab and Latin American institutions members of OBREAL GLOBAL and looks forward to working together with the FICCI, HE sectors and the Association of Indian Universities.
The OBREAL- GLOBAL India Chapter will be head-quartered in Bengaluru at the Asian Institute of Design and Dr. Vidya Yeravdekar, Pro Chancellor, SIU will be the first Chair of the OBREAL-GLOBAL India Chapter.
