The paper analyses the impact of the “Triple Helix” on innovation by assuming a network theory approach. The aim is to build a theoretical framework to improve the understanding of the effect of clusters involving industrial, academic and institutional players on the cluster’s innovation. In particular the work is focused on intra-cluster and inter-cluster structural and nodal characteristics in the life-science industry.
