About the ITHI

The International Triple Helix Institute (ITHI)  as a non-profit institution was born in  in Aug. 2013, with a regional innovation  and  development research remit and rebuilt in Silicon Valley. The ITHI keeps four missions:


  1.  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. 

  2. Serve as a think tank through consultancy, brainstorming new innovation ideas and models, like“triple helix spaces” and the World Innovation Network. 

  3. Conduct research on the triple helix concept, especially entrepreneurial university, and try to have collaborations  with other  organizations all over the world. 

  4. Disseminate the triple helix conception ---- organizing the collaborations based-on an international platform in Silicon Valley and other parts of the world.


A special feature of our Institute is to bring international scholars together for the “intelligent joint venture”, initially from China, Europe, Latin America, Africa and the US. We look forward to working with you to develop and practice the triple helix concept.
