Complementarities and synergies of quadruple helix innovation design in smart city development

  • Increased urbanization trends are stimulating regional needs to support transitions from urban environments to smart cities, using its holistic perspective as a source to innovation. Strong relations between smart cities, urban and regional development, are getting increased attention both at policy and implementation level, providing fertile ground for execution of the new European policy frameworks that supports quadruple helix approaches to innovation. Smart specialization strategies (RIS3) encompass such initiatives, placing ICT and collaboration between academia, industry, government, and citizen at the center of urban innovation. However, there is still lack of research on effects of such approaches to innovation, involving both quadruple helix clusters and ICT in utilizing innovation potentials for developing smart cities. This study aims to increase the understanding on how quadruple helix urban innovation strengthens competitiveness of regions by improving its local smart areas – RIS3. We identified smart specialization patterns and applied comparative benchmark between nine smallmedium sized urban regions in Central Europe. Building on these results, the study provides an overview of the effects of RIS3 strategies implemented through quadruple helix innovation clusters on competitiveness of regions and Smart City development.
