From co-operation between to co-evolution of science and economy

Objective

This thematic network, carried out in five countries, will contribute both to the evaluation and improvement of public/private partnerships by testing, developing and disseminating an empowerment evaluation tool. Referring to the state of the art of innovation theory the thesis is that active promotion of co-evolution between public universities, research bodies and private companies is a key factor for the development oaf highly innovative knowledge society. Co-evolution is a joint learning process that merges the different worlds of public science and private companies. Successful co-evolution between public and private partners will be collaborative, based upon mutual trust and the willingness of the partners to learn from each other in order to create and apply new and higher level of knowledge. The empowerment evaluation tool is an actor driven means that can be used to actively promote co-evolution.
