The temperature dependence of the conductivity of a granular system is considered in a regime where electronic transport is facilitated by inelastic electron-electron scattering. We analyze the temperature dependence of the electron-electron scattering rate of the system, and find that it leads, for a wide temperature range, to a linear dependence of the conductivity on T.
