Welcome to the “Upgrading of Quality Infrastructure in Africa” project’s website. This project is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and is implemented by the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), Germany’s national metrology institute.

Quality infrastructure is not everything, but without quality infrastructure everything is nothing!


Quality infrastructure plays a major role in enabling industrialisation and boosting trade by reducing trade costs and removing trade barriers. This is why we, the staff members of the International Cooperation Group at PTB, cooperate with our partners in other countries to support the development of quality infrastructure worldwide.
