    Longtemps échappées à l’intention des pouvoirs publics, les PME chinoises sont aujourd’hui identifiées comme un enjeu important dans le Grand Bond en avant de l’innovation de la Chine. Si les études sur le système d’innovation en Chine et les grandes entreprises publiques sont abondantes, l’innovation des PME ainsi que les mesures publiques spécifiques qui leur ciblent sont toutefois relativement peu étudiées. Cette étude tente d’identifier la place des PME chinoises dans le système de recherche et productif depuis les réformes économiques et la transformation des institutions de recherche lancées en 1978 et de repositionner les PME dans les politiques d’innovation en Chine. En ce faisant, elle propose une nouvelle lecture de l’analyse de performance de l’innovation en Chine. After being ignored by the public authorities for a long time, the Chinese SMEs are nowadays identified as an important issue in China's Great Leap Forward of Innovation. While studies on the innovation system in China and large public enterprises are abundant, innovation by SMEs and the specific public measures targeting them are relatively little studied. This study attempts to identify the place of the Chinese SMEs in the research and productive system since the economic reforms and the transformation of research institutions in 1978 and to reposition the SME innovation policies in China. In this way, it proposes a new reading of the analysis of innovation performance in China.
