Abstrakt

Corolab is an innovation network platform grounded in Roskilde, Denmark, that is based on the principle of Triple Helix system; academia, industry and government. The study examines knowledge sharing in the network viewed from members of the ‘sustainability cluster’ in Corolab. It also identifies the members’ expectations to the network. Furthermore the study applies Social Network Analysis to identify Corolab’s network relations. The main issue will be concentrated about answering following question:
‘How does Corolab´s members perceive the sharing of knowledge and which expectations do the members have to Corolab´s network’
The theoretical point of view that has been used in this study is social constructivism. The study has been conducted with seven interviews with Corolab network members and one interview with the former CEO of Corolab.
The study concludes that members with a primary role has a better knowledge about Corolab than members with a secondary role in the network. The secondary members’ knowledge can be characterized as limited. All seven members trust that knowledge can safely be shared internally in the network. The practical information from Corolab has been inadequate for three members. The study also concludes that the members representing the different spheres of Triple Helix have different expectations for Corolab’s network. Knowledge institutions (academia) expect learning while industries expect workable solutions. Government expectations can’t be specified due to lack of empirical research.
