The Academie des Sciences was missing from his collection of awards… But no longer! After the MIT Technology Review Innovators and the Innovative Environment Techniques prize in 2013, an IUF nomination in 2015, the Léon Brillouin SEE/IEEE prize in 2016, the prestigious ERC recognition in 2018, and finally, the International MTT-S Outstanding Young Engineer Award in 2019, Etienne Perret just received the IMT Espoir Prize from the Academie des Sciences. Etienne is currently an associate professor at Grenoble INP-Esisar, UGA, and head of the ORSYS team at the System Design and Integration lab (Grenoble INP/UGA).
After having received the MIT Technology Review Innovators award and the Innovative techniques for Environment award in 2013, the Léon Brillouin SEE/IEEE award in 2016 and the prestigious ERC award in 2018 and then the MTT-S Oustanding Young Engineer Award in 2019, Etienne Perret has received a new award from the Science Academy and the Telecom Institute in France with the Young researcher award.
One year ago, UNITE! was selected as one of the 17 European University Alliances to pilot an entirely new concept of the European Commission towards the European Education Area of the future. Born as an Erasmus+ project, and later receiving additional funding by the H2020 framework programme, these pilot projects are laying the foundations of a solid structure that will enable the full potential of UNITE! as a European University Alliance.
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.
