Université Grenoble Alpes ranked in the top 150 in the Shanghai 2021 global ranking, and has strengthened its position in the Shanghai 2022 thematic ranking, published on 19 July. It is now in the top 100 of the world's best universities in 15 disciplines, including five in the top 50 and one in the top 20. This performance allows UGA to maintain its position as the third French university after Université Paris Saclay and Sorbonne Université in terms of number of disciplines ranked in the top 100. This new classification also confirms UGA's position as the leading research-intensive university in the region, after the universities of greater Paris.
UGA's results for the 2022 edition of this thematic ranking (published less than a month before the release of the general Shanghai ranking) recognize, first and foremost, the excellence of the work carried out by the scientific teams in the laboratories and research structures of UGA and its partner research organizations. They also demonstrate that the strategy pursued by the institution in terms of research and innovation policy continues to be highly effective. This ambition must be pursued in order to continue to develop all disciplines, both in basic and applied research, to promote multidisciplinarity and to encourage team collaboration between laboratories and research centers.

The Shanghai Thematic Ranking 2022 classifies institutions according to 5 themes - Natural Sciences, Engineering, Life Sciences, Medical Sciences and Social Sciences - divided into 54 disciplines. The research performance indicators considered in this ranking are the number of scientific articles published by the institution in a given discipline, the impact of these articles and the number of citations of these scientific publications in other articles, the number of articles published in the top scientific journals, the international character of the published results (number of international teams involved) and the scientific prizes won by the scientists of the evaluated universities

Out of the 54 disciplines evaluated, UGA is ranked 36 times: it appears 6 times in the top 50, 9 times in the top 100, 9 times in the top 200, 9 times in the top 300, and 3 times in the top 500.
