Quotation Paulesich, Reinhard. 2015. Performance of SMEs and the role of Resilience. Finance and Performance of Firms in Science, Education and Practice, Zlin, Moravia, Tschechische Republik, 23.04-24.04. Invited Talk




Peak oil is increasingly seen as a major threat to economy as well as infrastructures. Peak oil either happened (2008) or is to be expected in the near future. European gas production has peaked and it is doubtful if imports will be sufficient. A decline in oil production will possibly trigger a decline in economic production or even a collapse. Thus, regional development policies should consider regional resilience strategies. In order to do this it is necessary to clarify the resilience and operationalize resilience components: economic, ecological, social factors and factors of the built environment. This describes the background for answering our research questions. What can be SMEs contributions? How social sciences can measure their performance and their strategic options to get statement rich in scientific content. Regional, national and EU policies are challenged.
