In this chapter we focus on the invisible social structure of a leading ICT ecosystem sustaining a knowledge cluster in microelectronics, embedded software and nanotechnology, around Grenoble, France. Minalogic fosters key enabling technologies underpinning growth and competitiveness, from its beginning in 2005 and up to now. We map the network architecture of the Minalogic cluster through 107 collaborative projects supported by both government and industry, for the past decade or so. We use social network analysis and visualization to identify and pinpoint the key actors in the socio-technical networks that underpin and drive collaborative innovation in France and beyond. The centrality measures and ‘small world’ connectivity of the ecosystem highlight the leading role that a public research center, CEA Grenoble, plays in the ongoing development of this ICT ecosystem. We also discuss the role of ‘new Argonauts,’ such as Presto Engineering, returnees from Silicon Valley with operations in France and Israel, who occupy peripheral positions in the Minalogic cluster.

The development of emerging technologies demands a rapidly expanding knowledge base and intensive collaboration across organizational, institutional and cultural borders. This book is the first of its kind to focus on the management of key emerging technologies and their social and economic impact in Europe. Split into four parts, across seventeen chapters, the scholars offer multiple levels of analysis concerning the management of emerging technologies across various sectors ranging from nanotechnology, renewable energy and cloud computing to synthetic biology and particle therapy for cancer.
