Innovation is understood as a resultant of a complex and dynamic process related to interactions between in University, Industry and Government, in a spiral of endless transitions. The Triple Helix approach, developed by Henry Etzkowitz and Loet Leydesdorff, is based on the perspective of University as a leader of the relationship with Industry and Government, to generate new knowledge, innovation and economic development. 

After Amsterdam, New York, Rio de Janeiro, Copenhagen/Lund, Turin, Singapore and Glasgow the Triple Helix movement arrives to its 8th global meeting in Madrid, Spain, in 2010. The Triple Helix VIII – International Conference on University, Industry and Government Linkages will be held on 20-22 October 2010. It will be organized by the International Institute of Triple Helix - IITH and hosted by La Salle Innovation Park of Services for People. Its aim to connect academics, business leaders, government staff and other specialists involved in the different aspects of innovation management.

The conference program will include different kinds of interactions:

•      Keynote address plenary sessions with Triple Helix specialists 

•      Discussion panels with members of academy, industry and government

•      Parallel sessions with paper presentations 

•      Lunch speakers

•      Special sessions, dedicated to young researchers and specific themes

•      Thematic workshops

•      Posters and Exhibit Stand spaces 

•      Social program

Our aim is to create the best environment to enable a fruitful discussion between academics and practitioners in the University, Industry and Government spheres. The VIII Triple Helix also will provide a unique experience of Spanish culture and heritage.

The main theme of our conference is “Triple Helix in the Development of Cities of Knowledge, Expanding Communities and Connecting Regions”. Submissions on Triple Helix related topics are encouraged and should focus on the following subthemes:

-     Triple Helix model - building a theory (triple helix and sustainability: triple helix twins, people circulation, spheres taking a role  of the other, etc)

-     TH in developing countries

-     The role of University in the third mission - R&D, intellectual property and technology transfer

-     Innovation habitat (as hybrid and consensus spaces): incubators, science & technology parks and others

-     Government and public policy in Triple Helix era

-     Regional/Local economic and social development
