Recognizing the scientific excellence of our PhD Students

The Université Grenoble Alpes has honored ten PhD students who graduated in 2022 and whose thesis work was judged to be of exceptional quality. These awards recognize the excellence of the research carried out by these young scientists in their respective laboratories.

Thesis prizes:

  • the Academic Thesis Prize, awarded to seven people based on criteria of excellence specific to each disciplinary field and represented by the 13 doctoral schools on the site and research departments. This year an eighth thesis prize is awarded for interdisciplinary research work covering at least two significantly different doctoral specialties ;
  • The two Innovation Thesis Prizes are awarded to a work of exceptional quality that also includes an approach (special prize) or a project of valorization and transfer.
  • This year, a SER Thesis Award rewards among the winners of the academic and innovation thesis awards, a thesis work that respects the criteria issued by the establishment in terms of societal and environmental responsibility both in the conduct of the thesis and in the results. The winner is thus doubly rewarded.
As in previous years, candidates are judged on the basis of the scientific excellence of their thesis, their ability to present their work clearly and concisely, the scientific interest and spin-offs for their discipline, and the quality of their scientific production during their thesis. Additional criteria are added according to the nature of the thesis prize: interdisciplinary, innovation and SER.
