Theory and Practice of the Triple Helix Model in Developing Countries Issues and Challenges



Theory and Practice of the Triple Helix Model in Developing Countries Issues and Challenges by Mohammed (University of the West of England, UK) Saad

Theory and Practice of Triple Helix Model in Developing Countries contributes to the expanding literature on triple helix innovation - focusing on developing countries. The book is based on practical cases and experiences from Africa, Latin America and Asia. Relevant experiences and best practices from developed countries are also examined. The book is presented as a response to the growing awareness about the need for policy shift from the traditional technology transfer practice to a policy position that is capable of providing a sustainable basis for innovation and technological progress in developing countries. The book explores the triple helix system of innovation based on the dynamics of the interactive relationships between government, industry and universities in the creation, dissemination and sharing of knowledge in developing countries. A major point addressed by the book is the extent to which the 'triple helix' system of relationships between university, industry and government can enhance the effectiveness of universities in developing countries as agents of innovation, industrialization and sustainable development.


This book should be read by anyone who wants to think theoretically and practically about the role of university-industry-government relations in innovation and development Theo Papaioannou, Development Policy and Practice, The Open University, U K.
