Abstract:In 2019, the Municipality of Rheden was awarded the title of ‘Most promising Global Goals Municipality’ of the Netherlands. It is well on its way to implement the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. One way in which the municipality is working towards these goals is by using the triple helix model. The triple helix model is a cooperation model that unites industry, educational institutes, and government into a cooperation model. The municipality is already working extensively with this model, but it needs improvement. Within this case study, research has been done on how to improve the triple helix model for the Municipality of Rheden. Multiple different people from all three different partners, were interviewed and asked about their experiences and ideas regarding the triple helix model. After a thematic analysis, it was concluded there are three main factors that contribute to the quality of the triple helix model. Those being the creation of a network, the management of expectations and commitment. The network allows for easier, and shorten lines of, communication. The management of expectations allows for less disappointment and less problems. And commitment ensures that projects are followed through and new ideas are executed. Finally, suggestions for further research are made.
