COVID-19 THA Webinar series


The COVID-19 emergency is hitting hard many  countries and regions worldwide  and we, astonished, are looking at this crisis with doubts and concerns, wondering how to re-take control over our life, work, economy overall, and how and when to cope with the consequences of the crisis, once the emergency will be ended.

The crisis is seen by proponents of an activist role for government as a cornerstone for new opportunities and, following this approach, the THA intends to mobilize its international community in different ways and with different outreach and engagement activities,   in order to find out how the Triple Helix Model could help our societies  to better understand,  handle and cope with the crisis.


COVID-19 Webinar series

A series of 1 hour thematic interactive webinars will be organized in order to present and discuss:

  • how the most affected countries are reacting to the crisis and how they are managing and implementing the triple helix (i.e. what is the role of the government bodies, industries and universities in different countries, or what kind of evidence can be found in developing the Triple Helix actions general and special approaches), as well as what lessons were learnt in different countries.
  • how civil society have been responding to the crisis, how economies should react to the shock produced by the massive locked down and how a social consensus could be built to address the crisis better.
