Transformation of knowledge into wealth requires tripartite collaboration or triple helix:
Network between university/researchers-industry-government Each element recognises the mutual benefit of suchco-operation Evolving networks of communication

Boundaries between public and private, science and technology, university and industry are in flux Universities and firms assuming tasks formerly the province of the other sectors
