Intro message to the Proceedings from the THA President, Prof. Henry Etzkowitz:

“We celebrate the Triple Helix return to Africa, after a hiatus from Addis Ababa and Nairobi. In Cape Town, these coming days, we will address the renewal of the Triple Helix Concept and explore its relevance to South African reality. Can knowledge based innovation assume a leading role in driving forward economic and social development in circumstances where it is just assuming a legitimated role? We answer “yes” wholeheartedly, while recognising the need to address obstacles beyond the usual and cross varied “death valleys” to teach the promised land of flourishing innovation and entrepreneurship.”
