2016 Series

webinar series logo_senza annoProgramme 2016

The Triple Helix Association is proud to re-launch in 2016 its webinar series, which mobilized in the past year about 100 delegates from both the THA membership constituency and outside and allowed for open discussion and knowledge/practice exchange around the topics of Entrepreneurial Universities, Innovation systems, Industry- academia partnership and more.

The 2016 webinar Series will maintain its initial purpose to focus on emergent topics in the triple helix interface and to promote practical discussion within THA membership community and beyond.

We plan to hold 6 webinars for 2016, starting in January 2016. The first webinars in the series will focus on the topics we identified from our discussions with THA members and include expert talks on:

1. “Triple Helix interactions and Open Innovation in Southern Africa
29th JANUARY 2016, 6 PM CET
 Webinar video-recording available!

2. “Entrepreneurial Universities/University entrepreneurship & entrepreneurship education: views from Europe & the USA
30th MARCH 2016, 6 PM CET
Webinar video-recording available!

3. “Evolving Innovation Ecosystem and New Company Formation
13th October 2016 – 6 PM CET
Webinar video-recording and slides available!


Each webinar talk will be hosted by an academic and a practitioner to give participants a balanced perspective on the topic. We anticipate a great demand for the series and urge you to reserve your place promptly.

The complete webinars schedule and speakers will be announced shortly – watch this space!

The webinar series will be video-recorded and rendered available to THA members on the TH repository
