Abstract : This paper describes the French initiative in materials research against both a national and an international background, in an attempt to disentangle the local circumstances, which prompted this governmental initiative, and to charac- terize the specific profile of materials research in France. In presenting a biography of the interdisciplinary program in materials research PIRMAT, we argue that: i the PIRMAT denotes a failure of the French science policy in materials research; ii the leadership of the CNRS led to a specific style of research, quite different from the engineering approach of Materials Science and Engineering, and characteristic of a French style in materials research.

Keywords : Materials science ﰀ Engineering ﰀ Science policy ﰀ National style ﰀ Interdisciplinarity
