Triple Helix VII is an important occasion offering a major platform for the
exchange of ideas and experiences - academics will share their insights into
the dynamics of collaboration; business and industry will review their plans
and indicate future directions; and for government decision makers, will
explore new avenues for supporting developments, analysing innovation
frameworks and their impact on national and regional economies.
