The paper presents the GERPISA international network’s new research program (2000-2003) on the coordination of competences and knowledge in regional automotive systems. After defining a theoretical approach to the issue of coordination, the paper analyses the three main factors underlying the structural changes that are taking place in the auto industry: the emergence of new types of knowledge, globalization trends and the redefinition of social compromises. It then discusses the automotive systems’ reorganization: changes in the productive organization (modular production) and the increasingly immaterial nature of automotive activities (services). An agenda for future research is briefly outlined in the conclusion. © 2001 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.
