    [eng] What type of appara tus is most appropriate to research in partnership situations? The role of a research team in the basque country Hinterlands. - A group of INRA researchers established a social apparatus ("dispositif") in response to a request from a Basque Country political body to participate in an initiative to strengthen the future of livestock grazing systems in die local hinterlands. The authors characterize the various categories of partners and the nature of the research partnership they set up. They analyze this collaborative process and the role of the researchers in the various committees and working groups that were set up. They emphasize the mutual learning process characteristic of their involvement and leading to action plans implemented by the research partners: sheep cheese qualification, rehabilitation of neglected areas and recognition of the diversity of farming systems and related activities. Attention to methodology and epistemology is crucial to this type of research involving a diversity of partners, as is the appropriateness of the apparatus to the openness of such a process. [fre] Les auteurs présentent et discutent le dispositif de recherche mis en place par un collectif de chercheurs pour répondre à une demande d'intervention d'une collectivité territoriale : comment conforter l'avenir de l'agropastoralisme dans le Pays basque intérieur ? Après avoir défini plusieurs catégories de partenaires, ils décrivent le dispositif de recherche participative constitué. Ils analysent la dynamique de cette opération et le rôle qu'ils ont joué dans les différentes instances, en éclairant les processus d'apprentissage réciproques qui ont marqué cette intervention et qui ont abouti à des propositions d'actions mises en œuvre par les partenaires de la recherche : qualification des fromages de brebis, re-mise en valeur de certaines parties du territoire et reconnaissance de la diversité des systèmes d'activité. Des précautions méthodologiques et épis- témologiques sont indispensables à ce type de recherche conduite avec des partenaires divers et la pertinence du dispositif est essentielle à la conduite d'un tel processus ouvert.
