Transforming information into data: a use case at the Université Grenoble Alpes

Vincent Rauzier (Université Grenoble Alpes)

In 2017, the Université Grenoble Alpes (UGA) began the construction of a new database of relationships with its external partners, both local and international. The database provides the university with its first global view of its external relations and some of its impact. This new database also provides university stakeholders with tools for evaluation and decision-making.


Built from available information already present in a variety of university information systems, it also demonstrates how much can be accomplished with the information already collected and archived as a result of day-to-day university processes. However, the project also highlights some of the university’s ongoing weaknesses with respect to assessment, quality management, and data-driven decision making, and the need for further, more strategic use of information.
