A l'heure actuelle, dans la mondialisation et la fluidité des marchés, les systèmes territoriaux de recherche et d’innovation appuient l’intégration des entreprises de grande et de petite tailles dans la compétition internationale. L'attractivité des investissements, étrangers et nationaux, découle en effet des politiques conjoncturelles (exonérations fiscales, subvention) mais aussi et surtout des politiques structurelles (infrastructures, offre de qualifications et de compétences particulières, tissu économique dynamique). Le rapport de force qui s'instaure entre Etats et collectivités territoriales autour de la recherche est primordial dans la mise en place d'un programme de recherche qui soit bénéfique aux acteurs locaux. Globalement, au niveau national, le programme de recherche qui se dessine par le biais de ces rapports de forces multiples peut souffrir, par manque de coordination, d'une certaine illisibilité. Ceci peut être préjudiciable aux objectifs d’excellence scientifique et de compétitivité. In the current globalisation and fluidity of markets, the territorial systems of research and innovation support the integration of big and small sized enterprises in the international competition. As a matter of fact, the attractiveness of international and national investments ensues from macroeconomic policies (tax reduction, subsidies) but above all from economic change policies (infrastructures, supply of specific competencies and qualifications, dynamic economic milieu). The relation of power that is built between the State and the local authorities on research is major for the definition of a research program that will benefit to local actors. Globally, at the national level, the research program that is drawn by these multiple relations of power may appear as fuzzy, due to a lack of coordination. This may be detrimental to the objectives of scientific excellence and of competitiveness.
