Grenoble Institute of Technology came in second place in the latest ranking of France’s 100 top engineering schools, just behind rival Polytechnique. In terms of R&D, Grenoble Institute of Technology jumped from seventh place in 2012 to first place this year.

The ranking is put together every year by L’Usine Nouvelle magazine. In 2013 the magazine highlighted Grenoble Institute of Technology’s significant role in spawning start-ups and its partnership with local angel investor group Grenoble Angels.

In another ranking, by Industrie & Technologies magazine, Grenoble Institute of Technology led the pack for its R&D—outstripping rival Polytechnique. The ranking’s three assessment criteria are revenue generated by R&D contracts, the number of patents filed since 2008, and the number of PhD and post-doc students.
