Call For Papers
6th International Triple Helix Conference
Singapore, 16-18 May 2007
Theme 2:
Indicators - 
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:


  a.. Mapping Communication Processes in Science and Technology 
  b.. The Dynamics of University-Industry-Government Relations 
  c.. Indicators of Academic Entrepreneurship & Knowledge Exchange Relationships ('Third-stream indicators') 
  d.. Measuring Organisational Change in the Entrepreneurial University 
  e.. Tracing Inter-Disciplinarity & the Evolution of Boundary-Crossing Intellectual Spaces 
  f.. Analyzing Science-Technology Interaction & University-Industry Collaboration 
  g.. Measuring the Impact of Universities as Regional Innovation Organizers 
  h.. Indicators for Understanding Triple Helix Relations in Emerging Economies & Developing Countries

The analysis 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: 




Please make sure to indicate that you wish to present your paper in the conference sub-theme '2. Indicators/Measurement of Triple Helix Linkages and Dynamics'. Please send copies of your abstracts also to loet at and m.s.meyer at Successful authors will be notified of acceptance by February 16, 2007.
