The aim of the GIANT campus
In Grenoble, at the heart of the French Alps, the GIANT (Grenoble Innovation for Advanced New Technologies) partnership is forging dynamic new links between research, higher education and industry to foster the technological breakthroughs of the future.
The aim of the GIANT campus is to respond to major challenges confronting our society today, such as:
Eight international institutions under a single banner: GIANT
GIANT hosts highly innovative institutions
- From the academic world :
Grenoble Ecole de Management (Grenoble EM)
Grenoble Institute of Technology (Grenoble INP)
The Université Grenoble Alpes (UGA)
- Major French research institutions :
- Leading European laboratories :
The ESRF light source
The ILL neutron source
The EMBL for molecular biology .
Such challenges require the regrouping of people and means in a coherent environment that favours multidisciplinarity, exchange, confrontation, reactivity, diffusion of knowledge and sharing of skills.
Such a collaborative strategy requires excellence in research and development, bringing together higher education, research and industry, to achieve innovation in products, procedures and systems, of benefit to society as a whole.
