The Triple Helix

A Triple Helix of university-industry-government interactions is the key to innovation in increasingly knowledge-based societies. As the creation, dissemination, and utilization of knowledge moves from the periphery to the center of industrial production and governance, the concept of innovation, in product and process, is itself being transformed. In its place is a new sense of "innovation in innovation"-- the restructuring and enhancement of the organizational arrangements and incentives that foster innovation. This Triple Helix intersection of relatively independent institutional spheres generates hybrid organizations such as technology transfer offices in universities, firms, and government research labs and business and financial support institutions such as angel networks and venture capital for new technology-based firms that are increasingly developing around the world. "The Triple Helix" describes this new innovation model and assists students, researchers, and policymakers in addressing such questions as: How do we enhance the role of universities in regional economic and social development?How can governments, at all levels, encourage citizens to take an active role in promoting innovation in innovation and, conversely, how can citizens so encourage their governments? How can firms collaborate with each other and with universities and government to become more innovative? What are the key elements and challenges to reaching these goals?

"The 'Triple Helix' is a powerful framework for understanding the building blocks of dynamic economic systems. The book offers an excellent balance between intellectual rigor and practical utility. It will serve as an inspirational guide for students, practitioners and entrepreneurs." --Professor Calestous Juma, Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University "Professor Henry Etzkowitz takes the Triple Helix concept further on in this excellent book. There are several good examples from many countries together with theory developments and policy recommendations. The mutual learning, interplay and overlap between academia, business and government, i.e. Triple Helix, is very well illustrated. The Triple Helix concept can also be derived from Public Private Partnership to Public Private University Partnership, i.e. Triple Helix, in the knowledge based economy. I indeed recommend this book and the Triple Helix concept because I know from my own experience that it really works in practice." --Professor Per Eriksson, Director General, VINNOVA, Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems "Henry Etzkowitz knows his stuff. The Triple Helix is an ideal book for scholars in management of innovation and for practitioners and policymakers concerned with technology transfer. Etzkowitz powerfully illustrates the crucial importance of productive interactions and relationships between universities, industry, and government." -- Kenneth P. Morse, Managing Director and Senior Lecturer, MIT Entrepreneurship Center
