This chapter examines the high-tech industry in Grenoble. The Grenoble case confirms the heterogeneity of governance models. Both local and global actors participate in the production of a simple, collective good, indicating diverse adjustment mechanisms. However, the situation of governance and collective competition goods in the sector has several weak points that undermine its future and create grounds for deterioration, such as the large-scale dependence on public funding.
