Organized in collaboration with Department of Geography and Environment, London School of Economics and Political Science and Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship of Polytechnic University of Marche, the University–Industry Linkages Workshop is promoted by the Department of Economics, within the Research Internationalization Programme of Roma Tre University and supported by the Manlio Rossi-Doria Centre for Economic and Social Research (RD Centre).
In the Triple Helix innovation model, knowledge flows among University, Industry and Government are of crucial importance for the profitability and growth of industries. In this framework, Universities are at the centre of the relationship among the three actors; effective interactions between Universities and firms are specifically relevant to foster innovation and economic development. The aim of this Workshop is to discuss ongoing research on this topic, to promote collaborations, to exchange research findings and develop new ideas. Special attention is devoted to innovation policy under the new European Framework Programme Horizon 2020 which assigns a key role to regional innovation policy (Smart Specialization Strategy).
