Collective learning and path plasticity as means to regional economic resilience: the case of Stuttgart

Abstract : This paper links two strands of literature (collective learning and resilience) by looking at experiences with collective learning as precondition of regional economic resilience. Based on a qualitative empirical study, the emergence of collective learning structures in the Stuttgart region after a macroeconomic and structural crisis at the beginning of the 1990s is investigated. This process of building up adaptive capabilities in the region follows a pattern of institutional path plasticity. The relevance of these experiences with adjustment processes and adaptive capabilities for the economic performance during the great recession in 2008-2009 is finally shown by following episodic narratives of interview partners and secondary firm panel results.
