|Smart Quintuple Helix Innovation Systems: How Social Ecology and Environmental Protection are Driving Innovation, Sustainable
Development and Economic Growth.
Starting point for analysis is the key relationship between ecology and innovation and economic development, as it is being
postulated and suggested by the principles of the Quintuple Helix innovation systems: “Within the framework of the Quintuple
Helix innovation model, the natural environments of society and the economy also should be seen as drivers for knowledge production
and innovation, therefore defining opportunities for the knowledge economy. ... The Quintuple Helix supports here the formation
of a win-win situation between ecology, knowledge and innovation, creating synergies between economy, society, and democracy.
Global warming represents an area of ecological concern, to which the Quintuple Helix innovation model can be applied with
greater potential” (Carayannis, Barth and Campbell, 2012, p. 1, http://link.springer.com/article/10.1186/2192-5372-1-2). Recent
empirical evidence suggests further that there is (by tendency) a decoupling of economic growth from a further increase of
energy sector emissions: “Private-sector incentives help drive decoupling of emissions and economic growth. ... The importance
of this trend cannot be understated. This ‘decoupling’ of energy sector emissions and economic growth should put to rest the
argument that combatting climate change requires accepting lower growth or a lower standard of living” (Obama, 2017, p. 1,
http://science.sciencemag.org/content/early/2017/01/06/science.aam6284.full). Finally, toward the end of analysis, key features
for a program of Smart Quintuple Helix Innovation Systems are being presented for discussion.
