The Grenoble-Swansea Strategic Partnership originated as a research collaboration, which had the support of the French Embassy and Welsh Government, to develop a Franco-Welsh alliance in the areas of nanoscience, energy and ageing.
Since then Swansea academics have collaborated with Grenoble academics in an array of disciplines including Artificial intelligence, Biosciences, Computer Science, Engineering, Human and Health Sciences, Law, Medicine, Mathematics, Physics and Sports Science.
Research collaboration remains at the heart of the strategic partnership with:
- Regular programmes of focused visits to initiate and expand relationships; and
- Dedicated staff employed by both Swansea and Grenoble to provide support at project inception and cross-institutional linkages.
