Organization description

WATEF, formerly the Asia Triple Helix Society (ATHS), is a membership-based organisation that is dedicated to research in three core areas: triple helix relations and more generally, co-evolution in dynamic multi-actor systems (“TH”) webometrics, scientometrics and infometrics and (“WSI”) and futurology and innovation strategy studies (“FS”). WATEF’s activities are aimed at providing a rigorous methodological and conceptual basis for sound policy-making in both developed and developing countries.

Founded in February 2013 in Daegu, South Korea, WATEF organizes events throughout South Korea, including the annual flagship Daegu-Gyeongbuk-Gyeongju International Social Network Conference (DISC), which in 2015 will be held for the third time. DISC and other events are always organized in collaboration with local academic, private sector and public sector partners.

Although based in and primarily active in South Korea, WATEF aims to be a World Association by encouraging learning from and with international scholars and professionals, by contributing to the global creation and sharing of knowledge, and by supporting the ongoing globalization of innovation systems. WATEF welcomes your support, cooperation, help and encouragement.
