Grenoble INP-Pagora is the only school in France training high-level executives for the vegetable fiber, paper and cardboard, printed communication, packaging and biomaterials industries.
Since its creation by industries more than a century ago, Pagora has always known how to innovate to meet or even anticipate the needs of the partners who support it. This capacity for innovation makes it one of the first higher training centers in the world, dedicated to the recovery of plant biomass. Indeed, the lessons of the school and the research activities of LGP2 cover the entire chain from wood to printed or transformed paper and cardboard, from bioenergy to bioproducts, biomaterials and biocomposites. Its graduates benefit from an excellent placement rate and experience often remarkable career developments.
Integrated into Grenoble INP Institute of Engineering and Management, Pagora confirms its status as a Grande École and its international ambition, while relying heavily on the 1901 law association Agefpi.
To support their partners in a context of globalization and profound technological changes, Pagora and LGP2 have initiated an integrated management approach, QUALITY SAFETY ENVIRONMENT.
The first objective of this approach is to guarantee the compliance of the school and laboratory activities with legal and regulatory requirements relating to safety and pollution prevention.
In addition, it aims to improve the satisfaction of staff, students, researchers and partners as well as operating efficiency by reducing the risks and environmental impacts of activities.
Finally, it contributes to developing a logic of professionalism, performance and responsibility among staff, students of the school and researchers of LGP2, for the benefit of their personal development and their (future) employers.
The Grenoble INP-Pagora management and the LGP2 management are committed with conviction to this integrated management approach and put all the means necessary for its sustainability, thus establishing the foundations for the sustainable development of the school and the laboratory.
By getting involved together in this process, we will hold the following values high:
Professionalize • Improve • Grow • Open • Research • Act
Thus, we will fully fulfill our mission, for the greatest satisfaction of all.
