[fre] Cet article présente un panorama de recherches récentes sur la formation de réseaux inter-firmes. Ces réseaux sont considérés dans deux types d'environnement économique. Nous étudions tout d'abord des réseaux de collaboration horizontale entre firmes. Puis nous analysons des réseaux de relations verticales (telles que client/fournisseur). Nous examinons les architectures de réseaux stratégiquement stables et la relation entre incitation individuelle et surplus social dans les réseaux. [eng] This paper presents a survey of recent research on the formation of networks between firms. The paper considers networks in two economic environments. We first consider networks of research collaboration between horizontally related firms. We then study networks between vertically related firms (such as buyers and sellers). We examine the architecture of strategically stable networks and the relation between individual incentives and social welfare in networks.
