Abstract: A different type of university-industry-government relations took place in South Korea. In the triple helix model the entrepreneurial university becomes a key element of the innovation system. However, most universities in the world would not be autonomous in this network relationship. This paper proposes ||The Corporate Helix Model||, in which the university is established or acquired and transformed into the corporate/entrepreneurial university by the corporation prior to playing as an independent player in the triple network relationship. The model is postulated by a case study of establishment of Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH) by Pohang Steel Company (POSCO).

Keywords: corporate helix; triple helix; industry; establishment; corporate university; POSCO; POSTECH; Korea; universities; government; entrepreneurship; innovation; Pohang University of Science and Technology; Pohang Steel Company.
