The 18th International Triple Helix Conference, 15-17 June 2020, Tampere
Beginning in 1996 as a small workshop of scholars, experts, and policymakers interested in the dynamic relations of universities, government, and industries in the ecosystem of innovation, the International Triple Helix Conference has grown into a major venue of discussion, research, and policy development for the roles of tripartite innovation agents. The community of people involved in Triple Helix discussions and practices has created the Triple Helix Association (THA) in 2009, which is a not-for-profit, non-governmental association with scientific purpose and a global reach.
