Some 200 presidents from France’s top-tier universities will come to Grenoble on October 10–11, 2013 for a meeting of the prestigious Conférence des grandes écoles (CGE). The meeting will be hosted by Grenoble Institute of Technology and Grenoble Ecole de Management, and will take place on the Phelma campus. This year’s theme, “Innovation and value creation at France’s leading schools,” was chosen to commemorate CGE’s 40th anniversary.
The main goal of the meeting is to give participants a forum for sharing best practices for building an innovation ecosystem. The meeting will include panel discussions with opinion leaders from academics, research, industry, and politics, as well as tours of Grenoble’s research centers and technology platforms. French Minister of Higher Education & Research Geneviève Fioraso will give the closing speech.
