A year after its start, UNITE! is awarded an additional 2 million Euro funding from the EU – under the Horizon 2020 “Science with and for Society” call – in order to boost the Research and Innovation dimension of the European Universities.
Ranked 19 times in the top 100, including 6 times in the top 50 of the 2020 Global Rankings of Academic Subjects of the Shanghai Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) and 1st French university in 7 subjects, Université Grenoble Alpes is one of the leading French universities.
UGA's university clustering strategy is bearing fruit in the Shanghai 2020 thematic ranking, which for the first time recognizes this type of institution. UGA is ranked first in France in 7 disciplines, 4 of which are largely supported by Grenoble INP, an engineering and management institute, and is included in 18 out of 22 engineering themes.
Committed to a quality process for welcoming international students, Université Grenoble Alpes was awarded the "Bienvenue en France 2 étoiles" label at the end of May 2020, a label issued by Campus France and validated by an independent commission.
The institutions of the new University Grenoble Alpes that is going to be created on 1st January 2020 are engaging in the process of obtaining the label for their strategies by following the European procedure called HRS4R (Human Resources Strategy for Researchers).
