Encompassing a community of universities and research organisations in the Rhone‐Alpes region of France with a combined student population of over 65,000 students, Swansea’s Strategic Partnership with Grenoble is an innovative multi-disciplinary model for international cooperation, adding value through academic differentiation.
The Swansea and Grenoble Strategic Partnership is a long-term sustainable partnership that started in 2012 as a research collaboration in nanoscience, energy and ageing with University Joseph Fourier Grenoble (UJF). It has since developed into a unique, institution-wide multi‐disciplinary collaboration with Univ. Grenoble Alpes: a major scientific site in France, and an integrated university that regroups higher education and research stakeholders in Grenoble. These include Université Grenoble Alpes; Grenoble Institute of Technology (Ecole Polytechnique); CNRS and INRIA.
