The purpose of the UNITE! (University Network for Innovation, Technology and Engineering) program is to create a physical and virtual university network across Europe from Finland to Portugal. UNITE! was selected as one of the 17 European University Alliances to receive funding from the European Commission.
Grenoble INP-UGA, Institute of Engineering and Management is one of the seven members* of this university alliance that serves some 180,000 students. UNITE! will be rolled out gradually. In the first semester of the academic year, Grenoble INP schools Phelma and Ense3 introduced thirteen new courses in the field of energy, which is one of the pillars of the UNITE! program. Six Grenoble-based students were able to enroll in elective courses offered by partner universities this year.
Amid the ongoing Covid pandemic, the UNITE! program partners will continue to help to raise Europe’s international profile as a center for scientific research and business—even if they have to do it from home!
