Located in the centre of an urban area of more than six hundred thousands people which makes it the second metropolis of the region, Grenoble-Alpes Métropole is an important centre of high-tech research and industry.

    Grenoble Alpes Metropole is a metropolitan government created in 2000 and made up of 28 municipalities and 405.000 inhabitants. Grenoble-Alpes Métropole has the responsibility of many powers: economic development, mobility, environmental (green spaces management, water treatment and waste collecting), housing and cohesion policies. Grenoble agglomeration has also a long tradition of empowering citizen.

    Since 2005 a global strategy has been implemented with the creation of an "agglomeration project" focused on 3 main objectives (nature, innovation and solidarity) to drive the agglomeration into the post-carbone society. All local policies follow these objectives. In the next years, a new “Metropolitan Project” will replace the current strategy.
