Promotion of french-speaking communities

Since its creation, Université Grenoble Alpes (UGA) has been committed to the promotion of cultural and scientific French-speaking communities.
These fields are based not only on the dialogue of disciplines but above all on the circulation of languages, cultures and knowledge in a spirit of exchange, respect and solidarity. By giving itself the ambition to better respond to all the challenges posed to universities by the world of today and tomorrow, the UGA contributes to the vitality of a scientific space of interdisciplinary and intercultural excellence in French and internationally recognized. As a full member of the Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF), a major partner of Campus France (the number of foreign French-speaking students hosted in Grenoble is growing rapidly), the UGA encourages cooperation projects co-constructed with its counterparts in Africa, Asia and Canada which aim to strengthen the capacities of higher education in third countries, support training activities for trainers, contribute to innovation in pedagogical engineering in the context of the digital transition. Numerous research projects, mobility programmes and summer schools in favour of a united cultural and scientific Francophonie have been set up thanks to regional, national and European support.
