Culture de la différence et pratiques de l'articulation entre chercheurs en micro et nanosystèmes.

Abstract : This chapter presents an ethnographic investigation on a few laboratories in the field of the micro and nanotechnologies. It analyzes the processes of the construction of "cultural differences", their over passing and their reconfiguration. It accounts for the way in which the actors speak about groups and cultures in connection with the production of the scientific and technological knowledge. It arises from the examination that the actors suppose the existence of cultures to be located and explain like this the difficulties of co-operation which they meet. They postulate these cultures at the same time as they doubt of them. They also act to build, consolidate or transform these cultures, because they constitute their scientific and professional identity, but also because they direct the contents of the activity of work. The scientific and technical cultures then appear to be provisional constructions resulting from the balance of the actions, of the work of equipping of the action which leads to a material culture.
