Evaluation moderne, évaluation modeste ? Le cas des pôles de compétitivité français

Abstract : Public policy evaluations constitute a current topic among practitioners and academics working on public action. However, beyond a mutual agreement on the principles of evaluation, there is hardly any stabilisation of evaluation doctrines and practices. Different models coexist, according to the country and the period. Basing our analysis on the evaluation of the French cluster policy in 2008, we highlight the main difficulties of the evaluation process, which are linked to the systemic, multi-actor and heterogeneous character of a "cluster". Through the analysis of how the results of the evaluation are used, we then show that this evaluation takes part of a progressive construction of doctrine on what a cluster is and how it should be managed. In conclusion, we build the basis of an evaluation framework, in which evaluation is integrated in a larger public policy management process.
