Call for Paper: Special Issue on “Triple Helix Innovation in the EU New Member States and Candidate Countries: Catching Up, Muddling Through, Forging Ahead?”

As Guest Editor, our colleague Dr. Marina Ranga from the Human Sciences and Technologies Advanced Research (H-STAR) Institute at Stanford University, US, is currently putting in place a special issue of the International Journal of Transitions and Innovation Systems (Inderscience Publishers).

This Special Issue aims to examine recent innovation developments in the new EU Member States and candidate countries from a Triple Helix perspective, in the context of transformations induced by the EU integration, or the preparations in view of this process, respectively. The main objective is to assess the impact of EU integration on the reform and modernisation of national RDI policies, programmes, actors, infrastructures, institutional framework, strengthening of science-industry links and research commercialisation, internationalisation, etc. The impact of the economic crisis on the three major Triple Helix actors: university, industry and government, and the overall effect at the national and regional level will be also examined.
