Prime institutions of higher education participate in the GIANT project as one its four founding communities, with the others being scientific research facilities, industrial corporations and public authorities.
Students who come to study in Grenoble will be able to develop their knowledge and skills, as well as their personal awareness in forward-thinking institutions of higher education focused on key areas of study for the future: sustainable energy, information and communication, health and biology.
The students will have also the opportunity to use state-of-the-art facilities and network with some of the world’s leading authorities in key development areas, whether in fundamental or applied research. And, of course, Grenoble offers the pleasures of France’s biggest Alpine city, with easy access to the mountains and to France’s and Switzerland’s major metropolitan centers.
GIANT opportunities for learning
Grenoble Ecole de Management, Grenoble Institute of Technology and Université Grenoble Alpes offer a full slate of training opportunities in engineering, scientific studies, management and entrepreneurial innovation. Students are accepted at all levels, with studies leading to all degrees, including Master’s and Ph.D’s.
The GIANT campus offers an ideal environment with world-class facilities and the opportunity to be in contact not only with top-rated teachers, but also scientists and practitioners working in the real world. In fact, at the heart of the GIANT project is the idea that knowledge must contribute to real improvements in the way we produce and manage our energy, in the way we process information and communicate and in the way we take care of our health.
GIANT is truly a living laboratory in that it gives students a life-building experience to enable them to assume their responsibilities as future leaders. Grenoble also offers a particularly pleasant living environment in France’s largest Alpine city, niched into spectacular mountains in an unspoiled natural environment that offers a wide range of leisure activities.
