Research at Université de Grenoble

As a research centre of world-wide importance, at the heart of the French region of Rhône-Alpes, Université de Grenoble has achieved international fame in many scientific fields. The close interaction between universities, major research centres and leading multinational companies has made this pole of activity one of the principal scientific centres in Europe and the leading one in French public research outside Paris-Ile de France.

The Alpine Corridor is home to more than one hundred public research laboratories, most of which are called in French ‘Unités Mixtes de Recherche’ (UMR) under the control of the universities and major national research organizations such as the National Scientific Research Centre (CNRS), the Atomic and Alternative Energies Commission (CEA), the National Institute for Health and Medical Research (INSERM), etc.

The Alpine Corridor also benefits enormously from the presence of major international research facilities such as the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF), one of the world’s three most important synchrotrons presently in operation and situated in Grenoble ; the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), the world’s largest particle physics centre, situated near Geneva; and also the Laue Langevin Institute (ILL), world leader in neutron science and technology, possessing the world’s most intense source of neutrons.

Many major international companies, such as STMicroelectronics, Xerox, bioMérieux, Schneider, have chosen to locate in the Alpine Corridor attracted by the multidisciplinarity and excellence of the scientific environment.

The presence of major research organizations and laboratories of the highest excellence means that doctoral students benefit from an environment of exceptional scientific quality, open to the world of enterprise and to the outside world.
