The Concept of Book

One of the development bottlenecks in socioeconomic sustainable growth of the countries and regions is absence of policy coherence. The policy coherence can positively affect the stakeholders in the entire chain of development. The misalignment across the sectors and actors causes failure of many good initiatives.  Overall innovation ecosystem remains poor inspite of very good initiatives taken separately in education, industrial or public sector.

This research aims to produce guiding knowledge on how to Triplehelixize innovation ecosystems of a country, region, city or district by developing alignment of academia, industry, government and other stakeholders. The law, policies and procedural guidelines must consider the joint efforts of them and include the detailed analysis of effects on each actor involved in the development process.

The education sector assumes the job of teaching, research and, in many cases, provides a launching platform for startups. The industry gives employment, provides funding and generate economic activities. The government looks to foster sustainability and collects revenue to runs public operations and support development.  The innovation ecosystem based on triple helix approach will have value for each player across the virtuous circle. The education policies will help industry to generate economic activities and give employment and industrial policies will ensure good revenue for the state. Both industry and government policies can push new researches and education trends. The triple helix version of polices can cyclically impact every part of development chain positively and contribute in overall growth of the society.

The Special Interest Groups (former Thematic Research Groups), THA

The SIG of Triple Helix Association works for research and development on innovation ecosystems and models. The SIG aims to launch academic discussion on various interventions to produce policy research on resonance innovation ecosystems for the today’s socioeconomic sustainability challenges. We plan to study innovations systems, regional    innovation systems, cross-country comparisons and how innovation systems of country, region, districts and towns help in gaining competitiveness.
