Mark's presentation demonstrates how the Triple Helix model enables us to study the knowledge base of an urban economy in terms of civil society’s support for the evolution of cities as key components of innovation systems. It argues that cities can be considered as densities in networks among three relevant dynamics: the intellectual capital of universities, industry of wealth creation and their participation in the democratic government of civil society. It goes on to suggest the effects of these interactions generate dynamic spaces within cities where knowledge can be exploited to bootstrap the technology of regional innovation systems. Dynamic spaces, this paper suggests, that can best be explored through the all-pervasive technologies of information-based communications (ICTs) and those which are currently being exploited to generate the notion of “smart cities,” as the knowledge base of regional innovation systems.
