IDEX: Executive commission research and socio-economic transfer

Presentation and members



Univ. Grenoble Alpes aims at creating a world-class research and innovation university, ranking amongst the best French and European universities. The IDEX project will support the development of humanities and social sciences, and of interdisciplinary research based on excellent cutting-edge disciplines. The development of relations with cultural, social and industrial partners is also a priority, based on a strategy for transfer and valorisation resting on key assets: 6 Carnot institutes, 1 IRT, 1 SATT, several subsidiary companies, etc.


The executive commission Research and Socio-economic transfer proposes priorities and actions to the IDEX steering committee and to the IDEX partners, in order to reach the IDEX targets in these domains. It monitors the actions and is in charge of their implementation. In this respect, it defines the calls for projects and organises the evaluation of applications. 


The calls for projects relative to research and socio-economic transfer are the following:
  • Cross-disciplinary programmes
  • Strategic research initiatives, to support the visibility and strategy of the research departments
  • Pre-maturation projects to provide an early-stage support to innovation projects
  • Mentorship for ERC, H2020 and ANR applications
  • IDEX UGA Chairs for attracting talents
  • Joint laboratories with cultural, social or industrial partners

Beyond calls for projects, the executive commission will design actions to help laboratories develop their resources and facilitate relations with socio-cultural and industrial actors.
