A Brief History of the Triple Helix Movement

The Triple Helix concept was initiated in the 1990s by Henry Etzkowitz and Loet Leydesdorff, who analysed a shift from a predominant industry-government dyad in an Industrial Society to a triadic university-industry-government relationship (Triple Helix) in the Knowledge Society. This model presents an opportunity to achieve innovation outcomes for the socio-economic good through the collaboration with multi-stakeholders within academia, industry and government.

The Triple Helix movement began in 1996 with the first International Conference in Amsterdam. Bi-annual conferences occurred since then exploring the scientific research in the field of: the relationship of science, industry and government and their role in creating conditions for future innovation; cognitive, economic, social and cultural aspects of innovation; emerging models for the entrepreneurial university and more.

This led to the establishment of the Triple Helix Association  which enabled the facilitation and organisation of annual international conferences and summits for the engagement of international academia, multiple stakeholders, policy makers and practitioners interested in the Triple Helix model theories and practical achievements.

The Triple Helix Association

The  Triple Helix Association (THA)  is a non-for-profit, non- governmental association with scientific purpose and a global reach. 

Its main scope is to  advance the scientific knowledge and practical achievements related to all aspects of the interaction between academy-industry-government (Triple Helix)  for fostering research, innovation, entrepreneurship, economic competitiveness and growth. 

THA activities range from the development and debate around top class scientific studies, by means of  conferences, summits  and  awards; the networking among both leading education & research institutions and stakeholders to foster a wide dissemination and uptake of the scientific findings by means of  publications, academic  journals  and  co-operation projects; the support in translating academic models into practical achievements by enhancing capacity building of students, researchers and practitioners.
