Triple Helix Workshop “Building the Entrepreneurial University” 9-13 July 2012 and 12-16 November 2012, Stanford University
Organized by the Triple Helix Research Group,
Human Sciences and Technologies Advanced Research (H-STAR) Institute,
After a successful Triple Helix 9 International Conference last summer (11-14 July 2011), the Triple Helix Research Group at Stanford University’s Human Sciences and Technologies Advanced Research Institute (H-STAR) will organize this summer and fall (9-13 July and 12-16 November 2012) the Workshop “Building the Entrepreneurial University“. This five-day intensive workshop comes to meet a growing demand for learning about the increasing role of the Entrepreneurial University in national/regional economic development and growth creation. The event presents the experience of the most successful US universities, like Stanford, MIT, Berkeley, Caltech, Arizona State University, Boston University, University of Southern California, and University of Utah, various US federal and state policies and mechanisms to support them, as well as the role of venture capital and business angel investments in this effort. The event is organized as a series of keynote addresses, individual presentations, panel discussions, visits to Stanford interdisciplinary centres, Silicon Valley start-up accelerators and companies, a foresight exercise, etc., all aimed to explore in-depth various aspects of university-industry-government interactions. The workshop is targeted at policy-makers, academic and innovation leadership internationally, interested in learning about best practice on this topic. Held at Stanford University, at the heart of Silicon Valley – the world’s leading innovation and high-tech hub this is indeed a premium event that offers a memorable experience to the participants. An excellent line-up of speakers, from the top levels of Stanford and other US universities’ leadership, business companies and US federal and California state innovation policy administration, will cover the most important aspects of the process of building the Entrepreneurial University.
