    [eng] This papers argues for theoretical clarification concerning technological change within the French school of regulation. A comparison is made with the economics of technological change of Schumpeterian tradition. Focus on the conditions of balanced growth in the regulation school are opposed to analyses of technical change and innovation. The latter are more concerned by endogenous economic impulses which provoke disequilibrium. Theoretical coherence requires from proponents of regulation that, if they want to analyze technical change, abandon some of the main assumptions of this school. [fre] Cet article présente un plaidoyer en faveur de la clarification des propositions théoriques de l'École française de la régulation portant sur le changement technologique, et compare cette école avec l'analyse économique de tradition schumpeterienne. Les préoccupations de la régulation avec une forme de croissance équilibrée sont opposées à celles des analyses du changement technique et de l'innovation. Ces dernières sont concernées par les impulsions économiques endogènes qui provoquent le déséquilibre. Nous suggérons que la cohérence théorique et conceptuelle exige que tout chercheur venant de l'École de la régulation qui souhaite aborder le changement technologique rompt avec quelques-unes des suppositions de base de cette école.
