University Grenoble Alpes (UGA) has over 80 research laboratories supported by national and
international funding covering every major scientific domain, including digital humanities. UGA enrolls 45,000 students, including 7,200 foreign students in undergraduate and graduate classes, and has 5000 faculty and staff members.
UGA offers its expertise in culture, history, and discourse analysis to promote a better understanding of the importance of mining and resource extraction as well as the dynamics linking mining regions. UGA will work on the expansion of European mining culture and the dynamics of mining linking the New World (the United States, and the Dutch Caribbean Colonies) to Europe. UGA will document the historic mines (from the Roman period to the 20th Century) and the mining industry in the vicinity of two main thoroughfares linking Grenoble to the Italian border: the GrenobleBriançon and the Grenoble-Mont Cenis Pass axis.
Through its network UGA will provide contact with historians and geographers working on mines, with research groups working on the alpine environment and the historic and present exploitation of its mineral resources.
