L'organisation territoriale de la recherche publique en Bretagne : une approche systémique

Abstract : From a new study of public research on a Regional scale, we question the reality of a territorial system of research in Brittany. It is both a question of identifying the scientific characteristics of the Breton laboratories and encircling their space organization. From an original data base, we thus determine the fields of excellence and the effects of polarization or of proximity which come out from it. Thanks to a graphic and cartographic synthesis, we also define logics of site and network. We also apprehend the range of the radiation of collaborations between researchers and the degree of connectivity of the units on all the scales. Furthermore the multiscale approach allows us to clarifying the governance of public research. If the institutional action remains largely dominated by the prerogative of the State, it is nevertheless a fact that the role of the actors of research becomes more and more complex with the increasing intervention of Europe and Regions, multiplying in fact the devices of support and incentive to the structuring. Hence the interest of a systemic step to understand the political and scientists interactions that exert their influence on the socio-economic development of the Breton territory by the means of research. In a context of globalisation, the stakes of international competitiveness and attractivity should not occult the mission of regional planning. Consequently, this thesis has as much a theoretical objective, to supplement the still limited knowledge on the organization of research at Regional level, operational one, to warn the institutional strategies.
