Chapter Chapter 1 in Multiple Helix Ecosystems for Sustainable Competitiveness, 2016, pp 1-13 from Springer

Abstract: Abstract This chapter summarizes the evolution of the metaphorical concept of the triple helix, through the quadruple helix and quintuple helix; the second Leydesdorff (J Knowl Econ 3(1):25–35, 2012), a founder of Triple Helix, invites the submission of other model proposals with more than three helices. Based on the literature review on these currents of collaborative interaction for innovation, knowledge and technology transfer, we set out to build a conceptual model that can help explain the improvement of sustainable competitiveness of economies and companies. The model has been designed from the concept of “Multiple Helix Ecosystems for Sustainable Competitiveness”, opening doors to its empirical verification.
