Grenoble Alpes Data Institute

An interdisciplinary research Institute on how data change science and society

The Grenoble Alpes Data Institute aims to undertake groundbreaking interdisciplinary research focusing on how data change science and society.

It combines three fields of data-related research in a unique way: data science applied to spatial and environmental sciences, biology, and health sciences; data-driven research as a major tool in Social Sciences and Humanities; and studies about data governance, security and the protection of data and privacy.

Data-driven innovation is a key pillar of 21st-century growth and will significantly enhance scientific progress, economic competitiveness and social well-being.

The Grenoble Alpes Data Institute is created in a timely manner in order to undertake promising data-related research on strategic fields including climate change, space, health, the protection of freedom and security of European citizens, and the promotion of innovative societies.
