The Triple Helix (university-industry-government relationships) is an established theoretical model. One of the practical instruments of the model is clusters. A cluster is a complex regional system which has differing modes of operation, depending upon the country. Cluster research is a key area which seeks to further the understanding of the practical implementation for collaboration between government, business, and academia.

We invite papers that have different connections to clusters such as: government regulations and influence at cluster level, The role of universities in cluster development, Localised University-business connection, Cluster Innovation infrastructure.

Research papers may address one of the following questions:

  • What is a future of cluster development and how Triple Helix drives cluster development?
  • Do we find a way of creating the effective clusters through Triple Helix interventions?
  • How to create the effective partnership between universities and corporate entities in a cluster?
  • What are the examples of best practice cluster governance?
  • Who should manage cluster development and who should lead regional Triple Hselix constellations?
