  • Harmonising scientific supervision,
  • Providing a more comprehensive, and trans-disciplinary educational offer during the doctorate (foreign languages, professional integration, Labels, etc.),
  • Contributing to the international outreach of Université Grenoble Alpes doctorates,
  • Promoting relations with businesses and international networks.
