The course Triple Helix of University-Industry-Government Interaction at Stanford is an excellent opportunity to understand how the Silicon Valley became the world's most innovative and entrepreneurial environment, as well as its particularities compared with other regions, both in the US and abroad. The importance of the “Triple Helix” (University, Industry and Govern) effects on the creation of a knowledge-based ecosystem is also analyzed. Additionally, students are guided to a hands-on seminar where they can learn and share about the Stanford Innovation System, which is intrinsically interconnected with Silicon Valley.
Professor Henry and Pospelova Tatiana, were outstanding. We could learn several important ingredients to boost innovation and entrepreneurship in a community and the role of Academy, Industry and Govern.
