In Grenoble, the GIANT Campus (Grenoble Innovation for Advanced New Technologies) is an alliance of 8 international institutions representing the worlds of higher education (GEM, Grenoble INP - UGA, Université Grenoble Alpes), research (CEA, CNRS) and major European instruments (EMBL, ESRF, ILL). It brings together 10,000 researchers, 10,000 students and 10,000 industrial jobs around thematic innovation campuses.


The CEA-List institute is a member of the Université Paris-Saclay, with facilities at the Nano-INNOV Integration Center - a unique site featuring the SYSTEM X Institute for Technological Research (IRT) and shared technology platforms (such as the Design Spot center) - and at the CEA Paris-Saclay center. The CEA-List brings together 900 interdisciplinary researchers and engineers specializing in software development, embedded systems, robotics and artificial intelligence, working to integrate them into innovative systems.
