Théorie économique des clusters et management des réseaux d'entreprises innovantes


  • Raphaël Suire
  • Jérôme Vicente


The paper deals with the aggregate efficiency of competitiveness poles based on the links between knowledge economics principles and clusters theories. Clusters profit by their geographical charisma and the density of knowledge flows. Nevertheless geographical proximity is far to be the single condition of their performance and dynamical stability. Knowledge is a complex and systemic good. Firms have to manage a trade-off between appropriation of their internal knowledge and accessibility to external knowledge by choosing the efficient position in knowledge networks according to the phase of the knowledge value chain. Clusters will exhibit aggregate efficiency only under specific conditions.
