Transforming University-Industry-Government Relations in Ethiopia
..:: Transforming University-Industry-Government Relations in Ethiopia

This publication is a compilation of reference articles and case studies and the discussions held around these at the Triple Helix Conference on Transforming University-Industry-Government Relations in Ethiopia, held in Addis Ababa on 29th-31st May 2006.

Better means for developing and using technology and knowledge have become critical for basically any country in the world. This includes developing countries which can ill afford to try and advance or survive merely by exploiting cheap labour and simple production technologies. Whereas the means and the potential of technology to make a difference in any kind of societal situation keep expanding at high pace, however, so does the need of speeding the upgrading of competencies and skills that are needed for supporting the task. The needs cut deeply through society.

The content of this publication addresses a range of issues, highlighting the varying nature of changes and processes under way in the Triple Helix and wider society. The overview piece on Ethiopia shows the range of challenges confronting this society, and several other contributions add further observations and conclusions on efforts that Ethiopia may need to embark upon to enable more affirmative progress in this area.

Many individuals contributed to the successful organization of the Conference in coordination with IKED and to the creation of the Ethiopian Triple Helix Association as a platform for developing more effective cooperation between various actors in Ethiopia according to the Triple Helix concept. The publication is intended to serve as a source of inspiration in Ethiopia as well as for other countries looking for new ways and means to dynamise the relations between universities, industry and government.
