Cross Disciplinary Program (CDP) projects

Transformative research projects at the service of interdisciplinarity.
Launched with the support of Idex Université Grenoble Alpes, the Cross-disciplinary Programs (CDP) are ambitious cutting-edge research projects built at the confluence of several disciplines, with the aim of advancing science and innovation and providing answers to four major challenges of the 21st century: With a total investment of €220 million, the 17 CDP projects position Grenoble as a major player, both nationally and internationally, in a number of strategic areas such as quantum engineering, artificial intelligence, computer security and personalized medicine.

These projects, which are resolutely interdisciplinary, give pride of place to human, political and social sciences, with 30% of the scientific community coming from these communities. Here again, the CDPs have helped Grenoble become a leader in interdisciplinary fields such as the links between beauty and health, research and creation, heritage science, and environmental modeling.
