This paper addresses factors that influence the relationships between industry, government and academia in New Zealand in terms of the earthquake engineering industry and identifies strengths and weaknesses of the model in comparison with Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) in Australia and discusses: � How are value conflicts from university-industry-government interactions addressed and resolved? � How does the Australian CRC model operate and what parallels and differences exist between that model and the New Zealand situation? � What can be learnt from the CRC model that can be applied to the New Zealand situation? A case study approach is used to evaluate triple helix elements and identifies key attributes which support or otherwise, effective operation and economic performance in the two sectors.
