Univ. Grenoble Alpes: world-class research for social progress

Univ. Grenoble Alpes produces world-class research and creates knowledge and innovation for the benefit of society, human development and sustainability.
Within its laboratories, researchers tackle major scientific and socio-economic issues in a bold, open and free spirit. Research activities associate higher education institutions, national research organizations and important European and/or international research infrastructures.

The quality of research as well as the synergies between the laboratories shared with the CEA, CNRS, Inria, Inserm, Irstea, CHU Grenoble Alpes, IRD and INRA laid the foundation for the recognition of Univ. Grenoble Alpes as an Excellence Initiative (IDEX).

Research is organized within:

  • 2 important technology laboratories, Leti and Liten.

Their objective is to boost the scientific development of the Univ.  Grenoble Alpes site, with an emphasis on interdisciplinarity and  collaborations with external partners in France and abroad.  Interdisciplinarity focuses on 4 socio-economical challenges, in  coherence with the strategic plans in place since 2008, and with local,  regional, national and European priorities:

Imagine the inconceivable and dare the impossible, for a better world!
Our aim is to reach beyond the limits of imagination and dare the impossible for a better world.
Organisation de la recherche

Research organization

In Grenoble, 3,600 professor-researchers work in 100 laboratories, structured through 6 research departments, 14 laboratories of excellence (LABEX) and benefitting from equipment of excellence (EQUIPEX). 45% of our 3,700 PhD students are international students. With such assets, Grenoble is one of the most research-intensive ecosystems in France.
Transformative projects

Transformative projects

Inter- and multidisciplinarity are ways to address scientific and socio-economic challenges at the interface of disciplinary fields. They also challenge disciplinary fields to go beyond their current frontiers. One of the two focuses of Univ. Grenoble Alpes consists of connecting disciplinary fields to support the progress of science, knowledge and innovation.
Valorisation et transfert

Knowledge tranfer and dissemination
