The International Triple Helix Institute (ITHI)  as a non-profit institution was born in Madrid in 2008, with a regional innovation  and  development research remit and rebuilt in Silicon Valley. 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 more dissemination 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!
