New Institutional History of the Adaptive Efficiency of Higher Education Systems. Lessons from the Prussian Engineering Education: 1806-1914

  • J-L.DEMEULEMEESTER
  • C.DIEBOLT

In this paper, we study the evolution of the Prussian technical higher education system and analyse how it is affected by (and how it reacted to) the economic dynamic. We particularly stress the micro-foundations of institutional change, i.e. we analyse how the individual behaviour of the actors inside the technique higher education institutions contributes to their evolution for better or worse.
