Debate on the strength of relationship between the three actors of TH has gone beyond subjectivism and landed into the objectivist domain where we must develop such instruments through which we can measure the strength of the relationship between the three actors (UIG). The world has started taking the Triple Helix model as a valid new economic growth model which encompasses strong linkages between the three actors of the helix (UIG). The expectations from TH are higher than ever and therefore it compels us to devise instruments which can objectively measure the relationship strengths between the three actors UIG. To create objectivity and meaningfulness in the TH idea we must talk rigorously on the development of such matrices and tools which can measure the strength of the relationships between the three actors. Once we can measure the strength of relationship among the three actors it will help to objectively associate the strength of the relationship with the apparent economic development of the country as well.
Relevant Questions to be investigated:
What is the level of communication between the helices?
What is the level of dependency between the helices?
How can we measure the level of dependency between the three actors of helix?
Measuring the outcomes of interactions between the helices.
Devising instruments for measuring the strength between the three actors.
Validation of these instruments across the globe.
