Identifying Optimal Models for Triple Helix Collaboration

The Institute is engaged in research and partnering to identify and develop methodologies and metrics that identify optimal models for collaboration. Triple helix quantification is a commitment to knowledge-based partnering as an endless transition of innovation rather than a single model for all economic, research and social partnering. Quantifying the components of various collaborative models will ensure efficiency and generalizability. Moreover, the codification of optimal models under variable circumstances will minimize the duplication of efforts, trial-and-error methods, and the perpetuation of systemic inefficiencies. Our primary aim is to find indicators that can be widely accepted and that function as proxies or correlates for the various paths of knowledge flow associated with each type of collaborative research models.
