It grew into an informal network of 16 European regions and countries, interested in boosting their knowledge-based competitiveness, exchanging good practice, encouraging collaboration and implementing new knowledge into innovative products. Also, the Network facilitated active dialogue between policy makers and the Triple Helix stakeholders. Finally, it supported better utilization of European Union funds for innovative projects.

Europe still has many assets to improve its competitiveness, but has become a different global player and needs to learn more from other dynamic economies.
