The Initiatives of Excellence in Innovative Training (IDEFI) are projects which anticipate the university courses of tomorrow and propose new approaches to education. Discover the IDEFI projects supported by the Université Grenoble Alpes.


Rolling out the red carpet for vocational baccalaureates at university
The National School for Higher Vocational Education (ÉNEPS) offers further education to students who have passed their vocational baccalaureates. As part of this adapted curriculum, students benefit from special guidance aimed at helping them to continue their studies by taking up a vocational Bachelor's degree, a Master's cycle or an engineering school in areas such as civil engineering, electrical engineering and industrial data processing and networks and telecommunications. Now that the ÉNEPS has been granted the IDEFI label, the aim is to develop it in a network of French universities.
