A word from GIPSA-lab's head

GIPSA-lab is a joint research laboratory of the CNRS, Grenoble-INP and Grenoble Alpes University; the laboratory is also under agreement with Inria and Observatoire des Sciences de l'Univers de Grenoble. At GIPSA-lab, we develop theoretical and applied researches on CONTROL, SIGNAL and IMAGES PROCESSING, SPEECH, COGNITION, ROBOTICS and ARTIFICAL INTELLIGENCE.

Multidisciplinary and at the interface between the human, physical and digital worlds, our research is confronted with measurements, data and observations from physical, physiological and cognitive systems. It focuses on the design of methodologies and algorithms for processing and extracting information, decisions, actions and communications that are viable, efficient and compatible with physical and human reality. Our work is based on mathematical and computational theories for the development of models and algorithms, validated by hardware and software implementations.

By relying on its platforms and partnerships, GIPSA-lab maintains a constant link with applications in a wide range of fields: health, environment, energy, geophysics, embedded systems, mechatronics, industrial processes and systems, telecommunications, networks, transportation and vehicles, security and operational safety, human-computer interaction, linguistic engineering, physiology and biomechanics...

Due to the nature of its research, GIPSA-lab is in direct and constant contact with the economic environment and society.

Its potential of teacher-researchers and researchers is invested in training at the level of the universities and engineering schools of the Grenoble site (Université Grenoble Alpes).

An organization in four scientific departments...

GIPSA-lab develops its research through 16 teams or themes organized in 4 poles:

Among its teams, the DANCE project-team is shared with INRIA Rhône-Alpes and the SygmaPhy team is recognized by the Observatoire des sciences de l'Univers de Grenoble. GIPSA-lab is also a member of the Carnot Institutes LSI (Software and Intelligent Systems) and Cognition, as well as the Grenoble Cognition Cluster. It holds chairs in the MIAI Artificial Intelligence Institute and is a partner in the Persyval-lab Labex. Finally, the laboratory is the holder of the ROBOTEX 2.0 National Robotics Research Infrastructure.

... and two support departments

The staff supporting the research (38 engineers and technicians) is distributed in the common services within two poles :

A group of 350 people

GIPSA-lab has about 150 permanent staff, including 70 teacher-researchers and 41 researchers. It also hosts visiting researchers and post-doctoral fellows.

GIPSA-lab supervises nearly 150 theses, including about 50 new ones each year. All the theses carried out in the laboratory are financed and supervised by teacher-researchers and researchers, 50 of whom hold an HDR.

Finally, about sixty master trainees join the laboratory every spring.
