In mid-February French Minister for Higher Education and Research Geneviève Fioraso broke ground on the Grenoble Institute of Technology-Phelma expansion slated for delivery in mid-2015.
The campus expansion project includes a seven-story building—with classrooms, labs, a student lounge, and a tech transfer center for second-year student projects—and a 500-seat auditorium with enough room for an entire Phelma class as well as special events. These new facilities will be linked to the existing building.
The project represents an investment of more than €25 million, and is being financed by the French government, the Rhône-Alpes regional government, the Isère General Council, the Greater Grenoble Intermunicipal Authority, and the City of Grenoble.
