Stanford, California 94305, USA

After Amsterdam, New York, Rio de Janeiro, Copenhagen/Lund, Turin, Singapore, Glasgow and Madrid, the 9th Triple Helix International Conference is hosted for the first time in Silicon Valley – the world’s leading innovation and high-tech hub – by Stanford University’s Human Sciences and Technologies Advanced Research Institute (H-STAR) and Triple Helix Research Group on 11-14 July 2011.

Focusing on the theme “Silicon Valley: Global Model or Unique Anomaly?”, the Conference promises to be a stellar event in the innovation field. It is expected to attract approximately 250 leading academics, prominent policy-makers and top business people, venture capitalists, business angels, consultants and entrepreneurs from over 40 countries. Participants will join a vibrant platform for dialogue between innovation scholars and practitioners, meant to advance knowledge and create new bridges for collaboration.

The conference will explore the inner workings of Silicon Valley and other international technology conurbations, in parallel with strategic innovation policy and practice issues in developed and developing countries. It will discuss the challenges and benefits of the collaboration between the institutional spheres of University, Industry and Government, show-case best practice, explore new models for knowledge transfer, and appraise the success of the third mission of universities. The conference will also offer an exceptional networking opportunity with representatives of Silicon Valley firms and other international high-tech clusters, international innovation experts and various Silicon Valley diasporas.

The Conference features a rich and exciting intellectual program that includes:

  • Six plenary sessions, involving internationally renowned innovation scholars and practitioners, such as Carlota Perez (Technological University of Tallinn, London School of Economics, Cambridge University, SPRU-Sussex University), Annalee Saxenian (University of California Berkeley), Sue Rosser (San Francisco State University and AAAS), Brian Arthur (Santa Fe Institute and Intelligent Systems Lab, PARC), Ann Winblad (Hummer Winblad Venture Partners), Bill Draper (Draper Richards L.P), Norman Winarsky (SRI International), Jose Alberto Sampaio Aranha (Genesis Institute, Pontifical Catholic University Rio de Janeiro), etc.
  • Over 100 academic papers in the parallel sessions, on a broad range of innovation topics reflecting the research and policy interests of Triple Helix scholars around the world;
  • Twelve thematic workshops, on key topics for innovation policy and practice, including the entrepreneurial university, public and private venture capital for innovation, the role of innovation in the economic crisis recovery, visualization-driven methods of social network analysis and applications to Triple Helix research, innovation strategies in Central and Eastern Europe and Russia, accelerating trust through telepresence for co-creating innovation, using innovation games to reach consensus in distributed Triple Helix teams, etc.
  • “Silicon Valley 101” – a multi-lecture introductory event providing thorough analyses of key features, history and current developments of Silicon Valley, by distinguished scholars and practitioners from different professional backgrounds: Doug Henton (Collaborative Economics), James Williams (.Inter­na­tio­nal Committee for the History of Technology and De Anza College, Cupertino), Martin Kenney (University of California, Davis), Burton Lee (Stanford University), Marguerite Gong Hancock (SPRIE, Stanford University).
  • An Oxford-style debate on the motion: “This house believes that Silicon Valley is a relevant innovation model for other regions in the world”, defended and opposed by leading international experts: Stephen Adams (Franklin P. Perdue School of Business, Salisbury University) and Eoin O’Neill (Trinity College, Dublin) defending the motion, and Margaret Pugh O’Mara (University of Washington) and Paul Van Dun (Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium) opposing the motion.
  • Special Event ‘From Valleys to Clouds: Enabling Innovators for the Era of the Social Enterprise’: a talk by Peter Coffee, VP and Head of Platform Research at inc.
  • “Innovation Think-Tank” After-lunch Talk Series, including Constantin Malik (Malik Management, St. Gallen, Switzerland), Heidi Roizen (Member of the board of directors of TiVo and Prysm, Inc., Fenwick and West Entrepreneurship Educator, Stanford Technology Ventures Group, Stanford University) and Tapan Munroe (economist, consultant, teacher and researcher at MIT, University of Augsburg, UC Berkeley, San Francisco University and University of the Pacific, author of several books on Silicon Valley).
  • “Meet the Authors” Breakfast Series, a presentation, signing and sale of books authored by TH9 conference speakers, in collaboration with Stanford Bookstore. Books authored by 25 TH9 speakers will be available for sale at the Stanford Bookstore stand set up at the Arrillaga Alumni Center on 12 July and at the Li Ka Shing Center, Stanford Medical School on 13 and 14 July.
  • The Best Student Paper Award, introduced for the first time in the 15-year long history of Triple Helix conferences, and sponsored by Stanford University’s H-STAR Institute and the private sponsors Mei Lin Fung and Ross Casley.
  • Trilicious – the Triple Helix Innovation Game, a fascinating and challenging game of innovation and strategy, designed specifically for the conference by Luke Hohmann, Founder and CEO of The Innovation Games® Company, an internationally-recognized expert and serious games designer.
  • A delightful social program, including a Welcome Reception, a Gala Dinner and a Californian wine tasting, in the company of the Saint Michael Trio, Opera San Jose artists and the Silicon Gulch Jazz Band, whose live performance will be a celebration in itself.

TH9 will mark the 20th anniversary of the University-Industry-Government Conferences Series and its predecessor, the University-Industry Conference Series, inaugurated in summer 1991 by a NATO-sponsored Workshop in Maratea, Italy, organized by the Science Policy Support Group, UK and the Turin-based Fondazione Rosselli.
