Call for Partners
malik management seeks partners, information on calls and opportunities for joint tenders with TH members (universities, research, governments, industry). The Assignment: Cities, Metropolis, innovative Regions and Clusters
malik management is a Swiss based SME in the field of management development. Our Management tools, trainings and methods are well known in the corporate world and also in regional development, innovation, research and education. We consider ourselves experts in the Management of Systems such as Triple Helix and Clusters issues. We have offices in locations worldwide.
In the global competition, governments promote regional innovations systems and try to link technology to spatial concepts like zones, cities, and to society. They promote technology (transfer), attract industries and build up excellence in research and education to upgrade their economies. Triple Helix members are specialists in either analyzing elements such as incubators, universities or S&T policies, or they focus on the interdependences between university, government, industry and innovation with an eye on the spatial concepts in the political economy. TH analytical studies aim at the provision of political recommendations.
In the malik integrated and holistic approach, we enable consortia and communities to define a specific innovation model and an organizational and strategic road map that takes into account all members of the consortia in a bottom-up method. For implementation, we provide a communication structure and the framework and the training (methods, tools, training, coaching) to manage the complexity of the TH relations and to enable innovation.
If you have ideas for joint tenders, cases, or if you have further questions, do not hesitate to contact me:

CALL FOR PAPERS www.tha2013.org
The Triple Helix in a context of global change: continuing, mutating or unravelling?
Never has the Triple Helix mission been more timely. Globally the economy faces significant challenges – unemployment, low or no growth, spiralling healthcare needs, rapidly emerging digital business models, on stainable changes to the environment. The need for universities and businesses to take action alongside governments is critical. The 2013 Conference will integrate highly topical contributions from world class academics and researchers with business and policy forums to address the key question:
‘How can the Triple Helix approach build ‘the enterprising state’ in which universities, businesses and governments co- innovate to solve global economic challenges?’
