The Triple Helix Association (THA) are proud to announce the launch of the inaugural issue of the Hélice Newsletter. It will be published quarterly (January, April, July, and October), and distributed to members of the Triple Helix Association via email.

Hélice is being launched at the request of scholars and practitioners, as well as policy-makers who wanted to be informed about news, updates, announcements, and ongoing research in the area of the Triple Helix.

Our mission is to enable those who are interested in innovation, economics, development and updates about the Triple Helix Association and members’ research activities. Hélice will provide
readers with a forum to spread and publicize their projects as well as research results broadly and fast. If you have items to contribute to forth coming issues of the TH-Newsletter, we will be pleased to publicize them.

We envision to increase the diversity of publication by including views and activities of not only academic scholars but also practitioners and policy-makers. We also aim to reach to TH Association
members regularly, and inform non-members about the Association’s activities and Triple Helix Research.

We greatly appreciate this opportunity to serve as the Editors of Hélice, and value your time and interest in receiving news from us, as well as your wish in publicizing your views via this publication.

We are thus committed to the best of our abilities to maintain an interesting, up-to-date, as well as high quality information that the Triple Helix scholars have achieved so far.

This inaugural issue of Hélice is dedicated to the Triple Helix IX International Conference held on 11-14 July 2011, at Stanford University, California, USA. This will provide those who could not attend the conference with an overview of the proceedings. It will also enable those who attended to refresh notes and reflections about the conference. In this issue you will find contributions from the organizers as well as participants.

For further information and publication possibilities, please contact Devrim Goktepe-Hulten at *email address protected*, or Sheila Forbes at *email address protected*.

We are looking forward to hearing from you all in 2012!

Report on Silicon Valley: Global Model or Unique Anomaly?

Culture, History, and “Lightning in a Bottle”: Reflections on Triple Helix IX

Is Silicon Valley Sustainable?
Tapan Munroe
My interest in Silicon Valley goes back to the time when I worked as the Chief Economist for Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E, 1980-1995) – one the largest energy utilities in the U.S. I tracked the Valley’s economy on a quarterly basis for more than a decade as it was an important region for the company’s electricity and natural gas sales.
