Case Studies Illustrate the Impact of Triple Helix Collaboration

The Institute has collected numerous examples of cross-sector collaboration that illustrate the significant impact of trilateral partnering. Through these case studies, the Institute is able to illustrate variant models of triple helix partnership and describe how these collaborations enhance innovation. Case studies provide a window into positive outcomes as well as the challenges associated with cross sector partnerships. The Institute has identified real value attached to partnerships between academia-government-industry, including economic growth; leveraged resources; new applications for existing knowledge and products; and, partnerships that provide new markets, value chains and potential. These case studies are being collated, analyzed and predictive models are being developed as strategic tools for optimizing innovation. Case studies will be made available to Institute partners.
