Global/local articulation in industrial models for phamaceuticals, automobile and aeronautics (In French)


  • Vincent FRIGANT (IFREDE-E3i)
  • Damien TALBOT (LEREPS)


This work seeks to recall recent space logics of three industrial models (within the meaning of R. Boyer and M. Freyssenet): pharmacy, automotive and aeronautics. Using the Economics of Proximities approach, we sustain that the “viable profitability” of the firms depends on their faculty to manage the articulation between global and local levels. This paper shows the diversity of industrial models coping with the globalisation constraint. We conclude with some observations about the local public policies implications.
