Grenoble is a major center for both technology and higher education. The city is home to more than 62,000 students, and around 15% of the student population is international. Together, Grenoble's government and private-sector labs employ 22,000 researchers. Liten is a pillar of this ecosystem. The institute also enjoys a prime location near exceptional scientific instruments like the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility or ESRF (one of the world's most powerful synchrotrons), and Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL), home to extremely brilliant neutron beamlines used for spectroscopy.
At Liten, PhD students conduct research to support the growth of renewable energy and the development of high-yield, low-carbon energy technologies and systems. The circular economy informs all research at Liten and efforts are made to reduce environmental impacts.
Liten is home to ten world-class labs and digital technology platforms that PhD students can utilize for their research.
PhD research topics align with Liten's strategic R&D programs. A total of 60% of Liten researchers started here as PhD students, evidence of the value our PhD students bring to our organization.
