Une approche territoriale du développement industriel : la microélectronique dans l'Aire Métropolitaine Marseillaise


  • Frédéric Rychen
  • Jean-Benoît Zimmermann


After a long period of building, the microelectronics cluster in the Marseilles Metropolitan Area appears to have reached a critical size and investment dynamics capable to ensure its durability. In this paper we aim to enlighten such an assumption by analysing the nature of the process that led to the present situation. We shall study the modalities of actors local co-ordination, while they are dependent of industry and markets global constraints. This will enable us to understand how such local co-ordinations can provide or not the ground of a territorial anchorage. Classification JEL : L23, L63, O18, R3, R58.
