    The economic literature dealing with the relationship between different levels of public authorities, uses a design of the institutional innovation traditionally limited to the capacity of the agents to improve incomplete contracts in case of their failure. Thus, it pains to account for the complexity of the regulation processes associated with the public policies, and more precisely with the institutional change. In this contribution, starting from the approach of dynamic of proximities, we intend to treat the comprehension of these mechanisms of innovation within public action devices and explain their impact on the regulation of the territories. The paper starts by an analysis of the complexity of institutional innovation mechanisms. Then, trough the concept of institutional hybridization, we take into account the overlap of territories governed by differentiated institutional devices. This theoretical thought is finally applied to the regional planning policy of Countries in France, and more precisely to the Coteaux Country located in the Hautes-Pyrénées County.
