– Measurement of Triple Helix Linkages and Dynamics
The Triple Helix provides a platform
for researchers from a variety of disciplines studying university-industry-government
relations. Following a tradition established at the 3rd Triple Helix
Conference in Copenhagen, also the forthcoming meeting in Singapore
will provide a platform for exchange and discussion for colleagues
with an interest in developing new and improving established indicators
in a number of areas especially related to the Triple Helix. These
include the following:
Processes in Science and Technology
The Dynamics of University-Industry-Government
Indicators of Academic
Entrepreneurship & Knowledge Exchange Relationships (‘Third-stream
Change in the Entrepreneurial University
& the Evolution of Boundary-Crossing Intellectual Spaces
Measuring the Impact of
Universities as Regional Innovation Organizers
Indicators for Understanding
Triple Helix Relations in Emerging Economies & Developing
of bibliometric, patent, or webometric data can make important
contributions to our understanding of these aspects of the Triple
Helix. Additional insights can be gained from extending informetric
analyses using other quantitative and also qualitative approaches.
We welcome informetric and
other quantitative contributions addressing the above issues.
Also papers of a more qualitative nature are invited in so far
they contribute towards a better understanding of indicators in
this area, especially contributions that shed light on the use
of S&T metrics in the policy arena and policy drivers in the
development of indicators.
We aim to publish
a selection of contributions in a dedicated issue of a relevant
journal. Contributions to earlier Indicators tracks in the conference
series have been published in special issues of journals, such
as ‘Research Policy’ and ‘Scientometrics’.
Papers that are to be presented will be selected on the basis
of extended abstracts which should not be longer than 2 pages.
The deadline for submission is January 8, 2007. Please submit
abstracts online following this link:
sure to indicate that you wish to present your paper in the conference
sub-theme ‘2. Indicators/Measurement of Triple Helix
Linkages and Dynamics’. Successful authors will
be notified of acceptance by February 16, 2007.
14: Triple Helix from Perspective of Cultural and Creative Industries
The 6th Biennial International Triple Helix Conference on University-Industry
Government-Links will be held in Singapore from 16-18 May 2007
with the theme "Emerging Models for the Entrepreneurial University:Regional
Diversities or Global Convergence".
This year the conference includes a challenging sub-theme centred
around issues surrounding Creative and Cultural Industries: "Triple
Helix from Perspective of Cultural and Creative Industries".
The sub-theme calls for analyses, researches, case studies and
debates on the role of university, government and industries platforms,
collaborations and knowledge exchange in the creative and cultural
Scholarly paper contributions that seek to advance over understanding
of the dynamics of University-Industry-Government interactions
in the Creative/Cultural sector and the fields of Arts/Humanities,
and the emerging entrepreneurial university models in particular
are invited. The organisers also welcome practitioner-oriented
contributions that provide insights on new policy innovations
and share knowledge on practices, as well as proposals for workshops
and poster presentations that contribute to promoting exchange
and dialogues on how universities in the 21st century can better
cope with the challenges of globalizations while serving local
and regional goals.
