The Triple Helix of university-industry-government relations is an internationally recognized model for understanding entrepreneurship, the changing dynamics of universities, innovation and socio-economic development.

The aim of the journal is to publish research for an international audience covering analysis, theory, measurements and empirical enquiry in all aspects of university-industry-government interactions. The objective is to unite key research on the transformations of universities, capitalization of knowledge, translational research, spin-off activities, intellectual property, knowledge and technology transfer, as well as the international bases and dimensions of Triple Helix relations, their impacts, social, economic, political, cultural, health and environmental implications as they arise from and shape Triple Helix interactions.

Open to all innovation authors, the special mission of the journal is to be an international outlet also for innovation scholars from developing countries.


With acceleration of technological development and adoption and greater market competition, innovation is a prerequisite for enterprise survival. Innovation activity encompasses both manufacturing and service sectors. Innovation takes place in the local, regional and international contexts, often under the auspices of an entrepreneurial spirit and within small firms. IJIRD addresses innovation and regional development, sharing findings that promote innovation, thus enhancing economic, technological and regional development through new economic activities that stimulate wealth, employment and growth generation and increase competitiveness.


Industry and Higher Education focuses on the multifaceted and complex relationships between higher education institutions and business and industry. It looks in detail at the processes and enactments of academia-business cooperation as well as examining the significance of that cooperation in wider contexts, such as regional development, entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystems. While emphasizing the practical aspects of academia-business cooperation, IHE also locates practice in theoretical and research contexts, questioning received opinion and developing our understanding of what constitutes truly effective cooperation.
