Grenoble Institute of Technology won first place for innovation and research for the fourth time in five years in a ranking published by Industrie & Technologies magazine. The school came in ahead of big names Polytechnique and INSA Lyon, most notably due to its high number of Ph.D. and post-doc students (911) and impressive annual revenue from research and development contracts (more than €23 million).
For years Grenoble Institute of Technology has been rolling out a strong innovation strategy supported by academic programs, research, and technology transfer activities. For example, the school’s degree programs now include classes for second-year engineering students on starting a business. The classes are designed to raise students’ awareness of innovation and entrepreneurship.
