It is one of the leading laboratories in "cold region science", covering a broad range of research topics related to glaciology (both theoretical and experimental), ice cores (with leading participation in large successful projects such as Vostok, GRIP, EPICA and NEEM), and climate research (modelling and field work) in polar and mountainous regions. The LGGE has a staff of approximately 40 permanent researchers.
Located at the heart of the Alps, in outstanding scientific and natural surroundings, the Université Joseph Fourier in Grenoble (http://www.ujf-grenoble.fr/) is a leading University of Science, Technology and Health.
