  Silicon Valley Innovation Forum (SVIF)


Mission

The Silicon Valley Innovation Forum (SVIF) is an informal gathering of like minded individuals who want to share ideas and insights on the evolution of the innovation ecosystem in Silicon Valley and how it compares and contrasts to other global innovation regions.  Is Silicon Valley a unique phenomenon, with a “secret sauce,” or an instance of a more general model of knowledge-based innovation and entrepreneurship with discernible  operating principles amenable to replication? What is the secret of the Silicon Valley as an innovative region? 

Participants will discuss the result of recent research including reports, articles and books as well as hear presentation from experts on different aspects of Silicon Valley’s economic  and social evolution. Visiting researchers, practitioners and policy makers from regions, internationally, will also be invited to present their experience and issues, individually or as members of a panel. 


About ITHI and THA

The International Triple Helix Institute (ITHI, triplehelix.net ) is working as the local chapter of the Triple Helix Association (THA, triplehelixassociation.org ), contribute its insights to a global innovation community and share the results of international research and experience on innovation. The Triple Helix movement was launched by Professor Henry Etzkowitz, University of London, Birkbeck, quondam Research Fellow at Stanford, President of THA and Editor of Triple Helix and Professor Loet Leydesdorff of the University of Amsterdam  at a 1996 workshop in Amsterdam organized to discuss research on the relationship of science, industry, and government and their role in creating the conditions for future innovation, regional, national and multinational  S&T policies, job creation and growth. 

THA has since organized fourteen international conferences including a gathering on the Silicon Valley model at Stanford in 2011 https://www.triplehelixassociation.org/conference-archive.   The next event, focuses on Innovation in fast developing countries and is sponsored by Tsinghua University, Beijing 21-23 August. There are currently four “local” chapters of the Triple Helix Association (Russia, Brazil, Greece, and South Asia/Pakistan and four virtual thematic research groups (Knowledge and Technology TransferUniversity-Industry Partnerships; Entrepreneurial Universities; National Innovation Systems and Models)


Henry Etzkowitz is President of ITHI, Palo Alto and along with Doug Henton of Collaborative Economics are co-conveners of the initial gathering of the Silicon Valley Innovation Forum. The Forum is inspired by various groups, including the Amsterdam ‘Knowledge Circle’ and New York City’s Inter-university Innovation Seminar, the source of the idea for an “MIT for New York” to fill a regional innovation lack that eventually morphed into the Cornell/Technion project. Perhaps SVIF is unique in being able to draw upon a broader and deeper innovation community! 



      Silicon Valley Innovation Forum III: Golden Triangle Comes to Silicon Valley

Time: 4:30-7-30 pm Monday, 28 March 2016, Networking/Presentation/Dinner

Location: 2nd Floor, Oak Creek Clubhouse; 1600 Sand Hill Road, Palo Alto, CA94304

By invitation

Title: The London-Oxford-Cambridge (Southwest) Golden Research Triangle: hype or reality?

-- A bio-innovation complex to overtake US

When Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, proposed a UK life sciences research triangle in the UK in the form of Med City – London, Oxford and Cambridge (April 2014) this begged the question of whether the UK would be getting a research triangle to match the biomedical strengths of the North Carolina Research Triangle Park, Boston-Cambridge area in Massachusetts or San Francisco-Palo Alto in California. This £ 2.92m investment is being funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England, together with £1.2m from the Mayor of London’s Office. The paper will address (i) why it is necessary for translational research to be institutionalized into multi-scalar cooperation and (ii) how such cooperation may or may not improve the effectiveness of translational research mechanisms employed by entrepreneurial universities.  (More info here)
