Évaluer c'est observer : les difficultés d'une observation pertinente des clusters


  • Sylvie Chalaye


Current economic policies are essentially based on cluster dynamics that is to say on the networking of geographically closed actors who thereby would have strong relations between them. Considering allocated financial means, the set up of these policies creates new needs of indicators notably in terms of economic impact. This article proposes firstly a multidimensional analysis framework necessary to well understand the performances of cluster. Then, the difficulties related to the construction of indicators for clusters are mentioned as well as those related to the conception of impact studies.
