At the national level, in the field of industrial automation and automatics, G-SCOP is a member of MACS GOR (Yannick Frein is the deputy director). In the field of operational research, G-SCOP participates in the GoR RO with the company ROADEF (the president is Nadia Brauner). In the field of mechanical engineering, G-SCOP is involved in the PRIMECA AIP network. The electrical engineering laboratory is also a member of GoR SEEDS.
At the international level, the laboratory welcomes the association EMIRAcle, the European Manufacturing and Innovation Research Association, a cluster leading excellence (of which Serge Tichkiewitch is the director).
In addition, some members of the laboratory network in the CIRP (The International Academy for Production Engineering), the Design Society, the network EURO (Association of European Operational Research Societies), etc.
The laboratory is also involved in many collaborative projects at institutional or local level (SEI projects Grenoble INP, etc.), at regional level (projects within the CRA regional ...), at national level (ANR, FUI, ADEME, ...) or at international level (European projects, PHC, ...). These projects are described in the activities of the appropriate Knowledge Areas.
