Abstract

The effect of proximity on development has fostered much interest over recent years and STORPER has put forward the hypothesis of a winning configuration for the 3rd millenium, that is one based on innovation, organizations and territory. Our research was conducted with firms of three high tech sectors in Montreal (biopharmaceutical, telecommunications and aeronautics) and aimed at identifying the effects of proximity on innovation and local development; the method was based on interviews and data collection. We conclude that institutional proximity combine with physical proximity in the structuring of a space of innovation at the metropolitan scale. Classification JEL : O18, R30, O30, R12.
