La chaîne d'ingénierie territoriale, vers un ingenium territorial ?

Abstract : This paper will present the results of a research project (co-financed by INRA, Cemagref, and the Conseils Régionaux Auvergne and Rhône-Alpes) led by a multi-disciplinary team as part of the research program Pour et Sur le Développement Régional (For and on regional development) (2008-2011). It is supported by a strong partnership among players and researchers, including the Agence de Développement des Territoires d'Auvergne and the Centre de Ressources de Développement Rural en Rhône-Alpes. Three main results will be presented. They stem from work done in France, but previous research in Abitibi-Témiscamingue (Quebec) indicates that they could shed light on issues elsewhere. The first result extends the most recent bibliographic work (Dayan et al., 2011; Barthe and Trognon, 2011; Janin et al. 2011) on the social origins of the concepts of engineering and intelligence as applied to territorial issues. From the point of view of managing territorial development, their complementarity is studied and new conceptual developments are advanced (building on Crozier and Friedberg, March, Morin and Lemoigne, Weick). The goal is to show that beyond developments in the field, theoretical models and paradigms have contributed to developing both a conceptual construction of these ideas and a true territorial entity. The second result presents the concept of the territorial engineering chain (Lardon, 2011). It enriches it by illustrating it with a case study and by showing that it is central to the coordination of engineering and intelligence and to the collective construction of the meaning of the territory. In this way, it also forms the hub of territorial ingenium (according to Vico, cited by Morin 2008 :1903). Finally, we can learn a few lessons from these results in terms of proposing training for stakeholders in territorial development.
