The International Triple Helix Institute (ITHI)is a non-profit institution, Spun-off from H-STAR of Stanford University in 2013, originated at International Triple Helix Institute (IITH), Lasalle Innovation Park in Madrid of Spain, in 2008. With a regional innovation, entrepreneurship and development research remit, In general, the ITHI staff keeps four missions:
create new educational or training programmes to prepare people for the new innovation roles, like those who are managing and working in science parks, high-tech zones and innovation parks, technology transfer offices, venture capital firms and incubator facilities and governments;
serve as a think tank through consultancy, brainstorming new innovation ideas and models, like “triple helix spaces” and the World Innovation Network;
do further research on the triple helix concept, especially entrepreneurial university, and try to have collaborations with other organizations all over the world;
do moredissemination of the triple helix study ---- publishing important documents, delivering some relevant information, organizing the collaborations based-on an international platform in Beijing and Silicon Valley.
A special feature of our Institute is to bring international scholars together for the “intelligent joint venture”, initially from China, Europe and the US. The ITHI staff looks forward to working with you to practice the triple helix concept.
Working Paper: Nine-Quadrants of the "Endless Frontier”: Triple Helix Technological Innovation Systems May, 2016
To impel technological innovation in regional industries is key to a national strategy of innovation-driven development. This paper proposes a nine-quadrant model, delineating the relationship of the Triple Helix innovation actors with three levels of technological innovation types —— independent innovation, re-innovation after import, and technological import —— and three stages of R&D activities from basic research to applied research to experiment & development.. The framework is utilized to develop a strategy to speed up formation of technological innovation systems in the regional industries of China, Paradoxically, the Linear model and planned economy are found to be in concordance with the non-linear model and a free market economy
Key Words: innovation actors, university-industry-government triple helix for innovation, technological innovation system of regional industry, linear and non-linear innovation models, scientific research stages
