Inspire innovation!

The school benefits from the exceptional high-tech environment of the 250 hectares of the Presqu’île de Grenoble. The MINATEC (micro- and nanotechnologies) and GIANT(Grenoble Innovation for Advanced New Technologies) innovation campuses give it strong connections with research teams and industrial partners (startups, companies). A French-styleMIT to meet the major challenges facing society: Information and communication technologies, renewable energy and environmental issues, biosciences and health.

Industrial context of Grenoble

Electronics and digital technology

Grenoble is one of the five major world centres for micro- and nanoelectronics, with 22,000 jobs in companies and 3,000 researchers involved in public research. No less than €12 billion has been invested in the sector over almost 15 years, to remain one of the leading global centres of excellence for semiconductors.

energy

This sector currently accounts for 12,300 jobs in Grenoble, including 10,300 in industry and 2,000 in public research. There are five major sectors in the energy ecosystem: hydraulics, hydrogen-based energy, smart grids and storage, solar energy and energy efficiency of buildings.

Health

The city of Grenoble is home to the Grenoble Alpes University Hospital, leader in the fields of neurology and traumatology, numerous public and private research centres that are world leaders in the sector (Becton Dickinson, Roche Diagnostics France, Medtronic, BioMérieux, Johnson&Johnson, Fresenius Kabi, Wright Medical France and Trixell), over 100 SMEs/VSEs and 80 startups. A dynamic sector of the future that has created over 11,800 jobs including 2,300 in public research and more than 200 companies and laboratories.

Chemistry and the environment

With over 400 companies, about fifty startups and research centres at the leading edge in the fields of the environment and clean technologies, Grenoble offers numerous advantages in terms of green industry for environmental protection, recycling, intelligent building, innovative materials, renewable energy and green chemistry.

Mechanical engineering and the metallurgical industry

Around major groups, a dense network of SME subcontractors contributes to the diversity of the industry in Grenoble. The sector has 8,000 jobs. Grenoble INP- UGA recently opened a platform for testing and designing new architectured materials: Ecomarch.
