She succeeds Isabelle Desloges who, having occupied the position for eight years, has taken charge of International Relations.

After graduating from the ENSEEG school of engineering in 1993, Agnès Boyer completed her PhD in Process Engineering in Grenoble in 1997. In 1998, she was recruited as Associate Professor at Grenoble INP-Pagora, with an environmental focus that shapes all of her activities, be they academic or scientific.

She considers that her role as a teacher is to enable young engineers to leave the school not only with technical skills, but also a strong awareness of sustainable development that will stay with them throughout their career, prompting them to seek innovative environmental management solutions for the organization or industrial plant that employs them.
Indeed, in 2002 she created the Industrial Processes & Environmental Management course at Grenoble INP (PIME), which she continues to run today. Her commitment to environmental issues also led her to take on the role of Environmental Manager at Grenoble INP-Pagora in 2009, within the scope of the school's Quality-Safety-Environment certification programme. She also holds a number of other responsibilities within Grenoble INP (carbon footprint, Green Plan) alongside the establishment's Vice President for Sustainable Development.

Her interest in environmental affairs is also reflected in the research she conducts as a member of LGP2's Biorefinery: chemistry and eco-processes team. Having previously concentrated on the treatment of industrial wastewater, her focus has now shifted to the use of membrane separation processes, which are commonly used in water treatment and in the separation of starch and cellulose nanocrystals. The latter are biomaterials obtained from lignocellulosic biomass and are used in the development of new products, such as packaging.

As Academic Director, she has a number of projects in her sights: renewing Grenoble INP-Pagora's accreditation to award engineering degrees, the application for which is due in June 2017, ramping up the international mobility of the school's students, apprentices included, and finalising the skills matrices that will highlight the general and specific competencies provided to student engineers to prepare them for selected professions.
