Partnerships and networks

Grenoble INP has more than 380 bilateral agreements with partner universities all over the world.

For Erasmus agreements, please contact the International Office of the respective engineering schools of the group.


The Erasmus+ project ASICIAO (in French, Appropriation des Standards...) whose main coordinator is the University of Technology of Troyes aims to encourage cooperation with partners from Senegal and Togo in order to offer engineering diplomas that are in accordance both with these countries' specific socio-economical needs and with international standards. Within this framework and throughout the entire project, Grenoble INP is undertaking to host and train the professors, directors of academic programs and heads of education from the African partner universities.

IFCEN, Grenoble INP in China

Grenoble INP, alongside 4 French partners (Ecole des Mines de Nantes, Ecole de Chimie de Paris - Paris Tech, Ecole de Chimie de Montpellier, Institut National des Sciences et Technologies nucléaires - CEA/INSTN), created the French-Chinese Institute on Nuclear energie and Technologies (IFCEN), based in Sun Yat-Sen University of Guangzhou. This institute train 100 engineers "French-style" each year.
This initiative received the support of major companies like EDF, AREVA, CEA and French government.

International laboratories

Grenoble INP is involved in 12 International Research Laboratories in the following fields:

- Physics and Materials
- Nanomaterials and nanoelectronics
- Technologie of information, Informatics, Automatic Control
- Electrical engineering

Those laboratories are located in 8 countries: Brazil, Canada, China, Japan, Mexico, Vietnam, Russia and Australia.

International networks

Grenoble INP is a member of the Conference of European Schools office for Advanced Engineering education and Research (CESAER).
Grenoble INP is part of a network of excellence made up of 12 leading European universities in Science and Technology (7 of which are considered to be part of the top 100 world universities in Science and Technology).
Our international policy in Education and European mobility is mainly based on the CLUSTER Network.
  ORA is a study abroad program meant for Ontario and Rhône-Alpes student exchanges. Universities from Ontario and the Rhône-Alpes region (Grenoble, Lyon, Saint-Etienne, Chambéry) participate in this program.
  The Bureau de coopération interuniversitaire (formerly known as CREPUQ, Conference of Rectors and Principals of Quebec Universities) is a voluntary coalition of Québec universities.
The Program for Engineering courses of Excellence in Vietnam, for which Grenoble INP is a founding member, is composed of 3 Vietnamese Engineering schools  (Hanoï, Hô Chi Minh and Danang) and 8 French higher education institutes. It is a 5 year program and trains over 200 students per year. It has a strong partnership with MICA (International lab in Hanoi).
  The Network of Excellence in Engineering Sciences of the French-speaking Community (RESCIF) was created in 2010 at EPFL's initiative, with the support of the Swiss authorities. RESCIF network comprises 14 French-language universities in 11 diffrerent countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the Americas and is focused on the fundamental issues: water, energy and nutrition.
  • EtuRescif is a student cooperation network North-South for research and development.
Supported by the Network of Excellence in Engineering Sciences of the French-speaking Community (RESCIF), of which Grenoble INP is a member, this association allows students to collaborate with RESCIF network and benefit from internships in its joint laboratories.
​​​​​​​  The CDEFI has been coordinating for several years a certain number of international programs financed for the French part by the French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs, Ministry of Higher Education and Research and the Ministry of Agriculture and Fishing. Those prorgams allow to launch research projects with foreign universities and, to establish strong relations with those institutions while fostering students' and teachers' mobility.
  Rede Magalhães is an European, Latin America and Caribbean Universities consortium created to promote and support the graduate students exchange between that universities (mobility program SMILE - Student Mobility in Latin America, Caribbean and Europe).
Based on the successful experience of the EU Erasmus-Socrates program and at the same time following recommendations from the ALCUE initiative between the European Union and Latin America and the Caribbean, a number of leading European and LA&C universities in the fields of engineering and architecture have started this cooperation network.
We also share common interests with projects like MENTE (Magalhães Enhancing New Topics in Engineering).
