Research & Innovation

Quadruple Helix (QH) Program

Quadruple helix collaborations create innovation through interactive processes in which different groups of actors contribute with their knowledge due to their function in society. Such collaborations formalize the role of civil society and this creates a more transparent innovation process based on the principles of responsible research and innovation. In addition, they could be more adapted to the needs of the twenty-first century, as knowledge is increasingly created in cross-sectoral collaborations and is not limited to one field of knowledge.

More perspectives are therefore needed to understand the present unfolding innovation process through a different lens. Innovation processes thereby become more open through the belief that different stakeholders in society jointly and actively are part of creating new ways of innovating.

Shaping science with and for society, dealing with the risk challenges of our planet.

Transformative change requires resilient networks and democratic stewardship that unite a variety of actors and encourage a plurality of methods, perspectives, and skills, allowing for an agile, engaged, and inclusive environment
