About this program

Building Triple Helix Partnerships

Innovation is at the heart of economic development. Innovation is expensive and many businesses - especially small businesses - cannot afford R&D units. The government mainly seeks to drive innovation through funding research in universities and hopes that research outcomes are relevant to industry and address development challenges. 

Companies also have R&D and strategy units to drive innovations. However this is inefficient, Universities may pursue a research agenda that is not relevant to the industry. Industry-driven research might be too narrow to help drive overall economic transformation.

A win-win situation is possible if the government, university and industry collaborate in terms of developing research agenda and pooling resources and thus hastening the pace and relevance of innovation. This is the so-called Triple Helix Model.

Through the Building Triple Helix Partnership program you will get the tools to develop a Triple Helix driven innovation strategy and you will learn how to build Triple Helix partnerships.
