This two-day workshop & conference on Boosting innovation and entrepreneurship, supporting the business growth strategies of the European Commission (in particular young innovative SMEs) focused on the determinants of developing entrepreneurial ecosystems in a European context by looking at how innovation can be better unleashed to the market.

This covered also more unconventional ways of financial support like business angels, venture capital and crowdfunding.

This workshop was organized in parallel with the European Triple Helix Congress on Responsible Innovation & Entrepreneurship (ETHAC2019) in order to maximise the participation & co-creation potential with eminent stakeholders from the EU & beyond. This way, the impact of the workshop is valid both nationally as well as at the EU-level. 146 participants from 35 countries (35% business, 55% academia (including students), 10% policy makers) co-created intensively for 2 days. Read more

A new Special Interest Group for PhD students and Early Career Researchers is now open for subscription


Triple Helix Association is the leading platform for both individuals and organisations who are interested in Triple Helix Model and related themes, An open space for interaction between academics, policy makers, and practitioners through the multiple activities which the association coordinates such as conferences, summits, webinars, workshops and more. However, we observed that members – especially PhD students and early careers who are still discovering themselves within research – do not benefit from what the Association can offer. Consequently, we created this group aiming to help them for fully integrating the Triple Helix community by offering assistance and mentoring, in order to join intellectually the community, get more visibility and contribute to the platform.

Why Triple Helix Governance is useful to dual apprenticeship systems
Author
: Michele Coletti, Grenoble Ecole de Management, France

Abstract: Apprenticeship is a contractual form of work-based learning that has existed for centuries, but despite its historical impact on innovation and competitiveness, it has been perceived as a system for the shop floor or low-skill jobs. The dual apprenticeship system combines school study with training on the job. Well developed in several European countries it can lead to highly qualified jobs, so attracting the interest of universities and other higher education institutions. Academic, business and government stakeholders working together enact a Triple Helix (TH) framework. This article analyses how the TH is suitable for the governance of apprenticeship systems and discusses the implications of the model.
