HSE Signs Cooperation Agreement with Université Grenoble Alpes

The Higher School of Economics and Université Grenoble Alpes (Grenoble Alpes University) have signed a cooperation agreement, initiated by HSE Faculty of Computer Science. Under the agreement the universities will organize academic exchange programmes, research and educational activities, and joint research projects.

One of Europe’s oldest universities, Université Grenoble was founded in 1339 and in 1970 was divided into four Universities, three of which — Université Joseph Fourier, Université Pierre Mendès France and Université Stendhal — were reunited under the current name in 2016. Today it is the third largest university in France, and ranks sixth among French universities in the QS rating.

The university is engaged in research, offers educational programmes for all degrees (BA, MA, and doctoral) in computer science and applied mathematics that meet today’s standards.

Université Grenoble Alpes cooperates with more than 650 universities from 81 countries. The HSE's cooperation with this university started a few years ago, it is well represented by the faculty of the Master's Programme 'Mathematical Methods of Optimization and Stochastics'.

For more information about the academic exchange programme with the Université Grenoble Alpes and other universities please see the webpage (in Russian).
