Henry Etzkowitz is Professor and Senior Researcher, H-STAR Institute, Stanford University and Visiting Professor at School of Management, Birkbeck College, London University and Edinburgh University Business School, UK. He is President of the global Triple Helix Association which links universities with industry and government at national and regional levels.
Henry’s pioneering research on the triple helix model of university, industry and government policy interaction forms the basis of his theoretical contributions here. These would focus on analysing, in international comparative terms, the efficacy of policy arrangements in bringing these three important sectors of the economy together. The triple helix is itself a transnational model associated with science spaces and an important task will be to examine the efficacy of the triple helix arrangements in practice across the case studies considered in the network. This would involve understanding of the different industry, university and government cultures that exist in different nations and exploration of the international movement and translation of the triple helix model. Henry has an extensive record of research and publication based on Silicon Valley and he will lead the project case study here. As President of the Triple Helix Association he will also facilitate key links with this important global organisation.
