Partnership with University of Tsukuba


Tsukuba is one of the leading universities in Japan thanks to its policy of innovation and internationalization. The partnership with the UGA started in 1997 and led to the creation in 2013 of an international alliance called "Campus in Campus" bringing together 11 prestigious universities in different countries with the aim of building university internationalization, improving mobility for students, professors-researchers and administrative staff, and sharing best practices. In 2020, we joined forces with Tsukuba to create an international laboratory that each year hosts UGA researchers, students and doctoral students and enables them to use the cutting-edge facilities installed on-site. This flagship partnership for our university is part of a territorial strategy conducted jointly with Grenoble’s city council and metropolitan area authority.
