CITY OF KNOWLEDGE NETWORKS
Using networks as a model for growth
There are a number of networks working to promote Lyngby-Taarbæk as a vibrant university town. Each network is anchored within an organisation and brings together local businesses, educational institutions, academics and other stakeholders to turn strategic focus areas into projects and activities.
The partnership of the City of Knowledge is based on the Triple Helix-model, which uses collaboration between research and educational institutions, businesses and public authorities as the path to innovation. Cross-sector partnerships presents an overview of players, resources and opportunities in the market. This creates common perspectives for concentrated efforts in the form of cluster partnerships.
We see a great value in the City of Knowledge, and in particular the targeted partnerships between public authorities, business life and educational institutions that create the framework for a leading university town which can compete for talent and investment.
