Dear colleagues,

After considering your feedback and weighing the possible options in this uneasy situation, we have decided to organize the Triple Helix Conference online. Please register here  by  June, 13 for participating in the conference.

Triple Helix Association members without a paper/poster presentation can attend for free and can get a link  to Conference virtual platform from mlaura.fornaci(at)triplehelixassociation.org even after June 13.


Tampere Higher Education Community welcomes you to take part in the conference, which unites scholars, policy makers and practitioners to discuss the future directions of innovation. The 2020 Triple Helix Conference is aimed to evoke both scholarly debates and best practice sharing on how innovation could create a desirable society in the future and how innovation should be understood and approached for achieving such a goal.

Future of innovation and innovation for future!

The theme of 2020 Triple Helix Conference is Future of innovation and innovation for future. The 2020 conference will promote dialogue among researchers, policy-makers and practitioners, who are involved in various aspects of innovation ecosystem for an example with the issues related to knowledge society, social innovation, technology transfer and innovation policy to name a few.
