The Triple Helix Association is glad to re-launch in 2017 its webinar series.

The 2017 webinar Series will maintain its initial purpose to focus on emergent topics in the triple helix interface, with particular attention this year  to the operationalization of Triple Helix interactions for regional development.

We hope that our Series will continue enhancing  practical discussion within the THA membership community and beyond.

We plan to hold 5-6 webinars for 2017, starting in February 2016.


1. “Smart specialisation – evidence based implementation in the EU
28th FEBRUARY 2016, 6 PM CET


Each webinar talk will be hosted by an academic or a policy maker and a practitioner to give participants a balanced perspective on the topic. We anticipate a great demand for the series and urge you to reserve your place promptly.

The complete webinars schedule and speakers will be announced shortly – watch this space!

The webinar series will be video-recorded and rendered available to THA members on the TH repository
