Quadruple Helix Discussion - Digital Transformation & Innovation

Today, involving the public in research, development, and innovation is the dominant paradigm both in international STI-policy and in innovation research. Academia, government and industry — the other three of the four subsystems of the quadruple helix—have already collaboration with “society” as trans- disciplinary (academic & research), open science and deliberate democracy (govt), and user-centered innovation (industry), respectively. But these discourses only take place at an academic level or within the individual subsystems, while there have been “few attempts to engage the public in dialogue”.

The goal of this discussion is to identify desirable and productive forms of interaction between the scientific community and the public. How do we make science-technology- innovation as an everyday topic of the layperson? How do the 4 “actors” in the quadruple-helix setup channels and standards for public interaction? How do we develop talent in STI?
