Affirming its identity in connection with its exceptional natural environment, Université Grenoble alpes (UGA) promotes its geographical and scientific assets as factors of attractiveness of its territory.
By co-constructing its territorial strategy and piloting it with its socio-economic and cultural partners, UGA wishes to strengthen partnerships with public bodies at local, national and international levels and to link sustainable development policies.

As a major player in the territorial strategy to promote the "Grenoble Alpes" banner, it is also working to increase the visibility and attractiveness of the Valence Territorial Campus, as well as research and training in Drôme-Ardèche.

Grenoble is home to 5 large international research facilities (ESRF, ILL, EMBL, GHMLF, IRAM), attracting more than 8,000 visiting researchers yearly from all over the world, and creating important economic benefits.

The city also hosts the GIANT innovation campus (Grenoble Innovation for Advanced New Technologies), of which Université Grenoble Alpes is a part. It combines fundamental research, technological research, higher education, business and economic development in a single location. Its goal is to create and support the technological breakthroughs that will drive the economy in the coming decades.
