This paper outlines the relationship between the Smart Cities (inter)Regional Academic Network (SCRAN) and the triple-helix model of knowledge production, a model encompassing industry, the university, and the government. The “step-wise” logic of SCRAN's triple helix for the SmartCities venture is then set out. This draws attention to the networking of the intellectual capital underpinning SCRAN's knowledge base and learning platform. From here the paper goes on to set out how SCRAN's wiki is being used to match the intellectual capital and wealth creation of the SmartCities' triple helix with the e-government services developing under the North Sea's regional innovation system.
