Our chairs

Supporting the research (R&D) of organizations through chairs of industrial excellence, scientific or teaching

Combining innovation and sponsorship

Thanks to the patronage of Grenoble INP's partners, the Grenoble INP Foundation finances forward-looking research and pedagogical innovation programs through Chairs of Excellence to meet the immediate and longer-term challenges of society and the economic world through innovation.

Seven multidisciplinary innovation clusters, linked to the main areas of application of our research work, mobilize our strengths to meet the scientific, technological and societal challenges to which we must provide sustainable solutions:

  • Energy and environment
  • Geomaterials and civil engineering
  • Materials, bio-based materials and processes
  • Micro and nanotechnologies
  • Digital and uses
  • Production and logistics
  • Management and organization
Supported by the Grenoble INP Foundation as part of its sponsorship program, our chairs are in line with the institutional policy of the Grenoble Polytechnic Institute.
“The Grenoble INP Institute of Engineering and Management of Grenoble Alpes University aims to meet new economic, environmental and societal challenges by combining the expertise of its schools and the cutting-edge research of its laboratories. The Grenoble INP Foundation's chairs of research and industrial excellence, supported by our partners in the socio-economic world, make it the keystone of the training-research-business triptych at the heart of our innovation ecosystem.”
