Université Grenoble Alpes (UGA) has maintained its position in the top 150 of the Shanghai 2023 ranking of the world's best universities, published on August 15. On a national level, UGA also maintained its position as 5th French university and 1st outside the Ile de France (greater Paris), alongside the University of Strasbourg, behind the 4 Parisian institutions: Université Paris Saclay, PSL, Sorbonne Université and Université Paris Cité.
With two Nobel Prizes, 7 scientists among the most cited in their discipline and 109 articles published in the journals Nature and Science between 2018 and 2022, the university retains its position among the world's top 150 universities for the excellence of its scientific output.

This latest ranking reflects the quality of the research carried out in UGA's laboratories with its national research partners (CNRS, CEA, Inria, Inserm, INRAE) and the relevance of its scientific policy.

Created in 2003 by Shanghai Jiao Tong University, the Shanghai Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) selects the top 1,000 higher education institutions from over 17,000 universities worldwide. It takes into account six criteria, including the number of Nobel Prize winners and Fields Medals among teaching staff and former students, highly cited researchers and the number of publications in the scientific journals Nature and Science.
