How does Grenoble contribute to the ILL's success?

Grenoble has a plethora of excellent research institutions and universities, and therefore offers ideal conditions for fruitful scientific collaboration. Despite its strong international ties, the ILL owes a great deal to its neighbouring institutions. For a broader view, have a look at the website of GIANT.

Grenoble also offers an ideal environment and good facilities for foreign visitors and staff, and this brings dividends in return for the local economy and culture.

How does the ILL contribute to the development of science in Grenoble?

The ILL was the historical nucleus of what has today become the European Photon and Neutron Science Campus. The epn science campus is now also home to the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) and an outstation of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL). The siting together of complementary scientific installations with a view to harnessing their combined potential is a model that has found followers worldwide.

With more than 6000 visitors per year the  epn campus brings a strong international dimension to science in Grenoble.
