The Theoretical Development of the Triple Helix Model of Innovation and Its Application in Research on China

My lecture tries to provide a brief yet comprehensive view of the theoretical development of the Triple Helix model of innovation. First, I will clarify what is the Triple Helix model in terms of its core rationales and distinct features. Second, I will discuss critiques of the Triple Helix model and recent improvements in theorising the Triple Helix model. Finally, I will introduce the neo-Triple Helix model of innovation ecosystems that I have recently proposed in an article published in the Triple Helix journal. When presenting each aspect, I will also demonstrate how to apply the Triple Helix model in research on science, technology and innovation development by taking China as an example.

About This Series

The LMRG Colloquium is a venue for members and guests of the Lise Meitner Research Group, "China in the Global System of Science," to share work in progress on an ongoing basis. It is an opportunity to raise questions, discuss methodological challenges, or get feedback on preliminary conclusions. We aim to create a supportive atmosphere that combines rigorous criticism with genuine curiosity.
