This chapter presents findings from a comparative study of user-driven competence centres and business-led research networks across a range of countries. More specifically, it explores the extent to which the centres studied pointing to potentially new organisational forms. We analyse the centres and networks drawing on the Triple Helix framework which differentiates knowledge, consensus and innovation spaces. We find that a small number of more recent centres may have the potential to create innovation environments that integrate activities across the three Triple Helix spaces.
