Strength in small: the University of Malta’s scientific output since accession

December 2016

McMillan, G. S., St-Louis Lalonde, B., Bezzina, F. H., & Casey, D. L.

(2016). International Journal of Innovation Science, 8(3), 269–287.


The Triple Helix model of academia, government and industry posits that the university can play an important role, even an entrepreneurial one, in innovation in increasingly knowledge-based societies (Etzkowitz and Leydesdorff, 2000). No longer the “ivory tower,” universities are now moving toward an entrepreneurial paradigm. The purpose of this research effort is to examine how such a migration has been accomplished in Malta with a particular focus on the changing activities of its University.
