Innovation is at the heart of economic development. Innovation is expensive and many businesses - especially small businesses - cannot afford R&D units. Government mainly seek to drive innovation through funding research in universities and hope that research outcomes are relevant to industry and address development challenges. Companies also have R&D and strategy units to drive innovations. However this is inefficient, Universities may pursue a research agenda that is not relevant to industry. Industry driven research might be too narrow to help drive overall economic transformation. A win-win situation is possible if the government, university and industry collaborate in terms of developing research agenda and pooling resources and thus hastening pace and relevance of innovation. This is the so-called Triple Helix Model.

Through the Building Triple Helix Partnership programme you will get the tools to develop a Triple Helix driven innovation strategy and you will learn how to build Triple Helix partnerships.

“This programme has offered me a tremendous experience, enabling us to share knowledge and insights with peers from all over the world. MSM has delivered an interesting programme with many speakers, industrial excursion and discussions with peers, that are also professionals within their field and each bring interesting insights, history and culture.”
Antonya Rumondang Sinaga (Indonesia), participant of the March 2023 programme
“The exposure to international perspectives, other viewpoints – business and cultural – was the greatest takeaway that even the content couldn’t top,” 
Philipp Gröne (Germany), participant of the April 2022 programme
