Abstract text The paper presents results of studying network collaboration of science, business and government (Triple Helix Model) as approach of creating economic sustainability in Arctic communities. The basic research was made in the frame of international project “Efficient Energy Management in Barents region” (ENERU) and used the data of 2014 year. The main method of the research is case – study (the case: collaboration organized in frame of ENERU project). The research objects are the mechanisms which assist in cooperation development between the participants of the model and effects of such cooperation on building capacity in local communities. The paper discusses opportunities for broadening links between local authorities, science and business and reveals the advantages of using the TH approach in creation of economic sustainability in Arctic communities. The interaction between science, government and business is analyzed using the concepts of the “institutional knowledge infrastructure”. The capacity building in local communities is analyzed using the concept of “sustainable development”.
