Abstract:This thesis is written as a completion of the bachelor programme of European Public Administration at the university of Twente. Its focus lies on conditions for regional economical cooperation in a Dutch economic board that consists about representatives from government, education and business organizations, also known as the triple helix, as Etzkowitz and leydesdorff described it (1997). The conditions that are used to conduct the research are adopted from three theoretical perspectives that have been used and applied by Boogers (2013) at the region of Twente. The used perspectives are: the Institutional Collective Action theory (Ansell and Gash, 2007), the Institutional Governance theory (Olson, 1965) and the Regional Regime Theory (Stone, 1989). The data collection consists of seven semistructured interviews with two members and five staff members of the board; all representing different organizations. The method that has been used is qualitative and therefore a case-study is executed in which the data collection contains semistructured in-depth interviews. The results per subject are presented and out of these results recommendations towards the board are given to enhance the effectiveness of cooperation in the board and to raise the knowledge about the functioning of a economic board in the Netherlands.
