Presentation of TH Chapters at XVII Triple Helix CONFERENCE, Cape Town

On 9 September 2019, the TH Chapter leaders from Brazil, Greece, Russia, Germany and Perú presented their work, achievements and plans for the participants of the XVII Triple Helix Conference 2019, Triple Helix –  a Catalyst for Change, during the panel “Opportunities and challenges in Operationalizing the Triple Helix model at regional level: the experience of the Triple Helix Association Chapters”.
The panel session aimed at shedding light on how the Triple Helix model has been routed in different local contexts by the Triple Helix Association Chapters, in order to boost their innovation ecosystems.  Particularly the panel intended to elicit the blockages, break troughs and achievements faced and reached by Chapters in operationalizing the Triple Helix model including the different TH constellation and orchestration put in place, and the expected impact in the long term.
The panel was chaired by Dr Christiane Gebhardt, THA Board member.
Dr Adrian Solomon, leader of the TH Chapter Greece introduced their achievement in Greece and showcased the sixteen projects currently implemented following the TH concept.

Then, Liana Kobzeva, on behalf of the TH Chapter Russia introduced how the Russian President’s Decree has started creating world-class educational and scientific centers in the regions of Russia based on cooperation between universities and industries turning the Triple Helix model into reality.

Professor Klaus Sailer, representing the TH Chapter Germany delivered a presentation about the newly established Chapter in Germany and about their plans to attract and involve all the German entrepreneurial universities.

Last but not least, Professor Branca Terra explained how the TH Chapter Brazil works towards creating real impact in Brazil and working in a network involving the most relevant Brazilian universities in the TH concept.


Finally, Professor Fernan Munos Rodriguez highlighted how the TH Chapter Peru has been established as a real triple helix cooperation bringing together policymakers, academia and industry in Peru to boost the national innovation ecosystem in the country.

The session attracted much interest among the participants of the conference.  Based on the presentations and practical tips delivered by TH Chapter leaders, some representatives from the South African local Government have expressed an interest to learn more on how to create a new TH Chapter in South Africa.
We thank to all the TH Chapter leaders for their work and wish them good luck for the future.
