Triple Helix

Triple Helix has been a key concept to describe how industry, university, and public authorities articulate their activities and how these combine to promote innovation (Etzkowitz, 2008).


While Triple Helix has been used at the macro level to describe the workings of national systems of education and innovation, and at the regional levels to analyze "innovations in innovation" such as the invention of the venture capital firm, the aim of this workshop is to explore practices around Triple Helix, how organisations and scientists are transforming their methods of performing science and translating it into practice to match Triple Helix objectives.

Papers presented at the workshop can be submitted for the special issue of Technovation.
