Abstract [en]

While networks between research, industry and the public sector are regarded as prerequisites for innovation and regional development, establishing these structures is not trivial and their success is far from given. To deepen our knowledge of these networks, a dynamic model describing the coordinating functions and their drivers within such constellations is presented and empirically examined by means of an explorative case study. The model illustrates the challenges of cooperation in cross-sector constellations, which stem from different logics and expectations, and how different actors' degree of commitment varies over time. In successful cross-sector collaboration, actors fulfil different functions during different phases, and leadership shifts over time. A greater understanding of these dynamics can enhance public policy initiatives aimed at sustaining cooperation for innovation and regional growth.
