Venue: TSU National Scientific Library, Conference Hall (34a Lenin Prospect)

Currently there is a widely spread understanding that an effective joint government-academia-industry cooperation leads to more promising and significant results rather than individual performance of each institutional sphere separately. Therefore, every stakeholder has own expectations from the Triple Helix model implementation. One of the key expectations in the upcoming period is spurring economic growth. The plenary session is dedicated to identifying possibilities of Triple Helix and open innovation concept to enhance cooperation of the Triple Helix actors as well as shaping the context for the discussion of outcomes, i.e. neoliberal paradigm, evolution of social and economic systems supported by efficient institutes, etc. Each context implies its own unique new frontiers and solutions.

  • HenryEtzkowitz, Professor, President, International Institute of Triple Helix (IITH), President, Triple Helix Association, USA Presentation

Issues and topics for discussion:

  • Do we see the future economic growth context as the only pathway for the Triple Helix model? Can we talk about other challenging rival patterns and frameworks inducing more efficient actions?
  • Is it reasonable to expect that the Triple Helix model implementation leads to economic growth initiation in a specific region?
  • Can we expect economic growth being generated by open innovation systems based on university-government-industry interaction?
  • What are the requirements for implementation of the Triple Helix model to become a real driver for economic growth? Do we know all of them? Are they as transparent and comprehensive as we think they are?

Panel discussion 1: «University economic impact»

Venue: TSU National Scientific Library, Roundtable Hall (34a Lenin Prospect)

While slowing down, the economic growth rate calls attention of each Triple Helix actor for the constantly enhancing visible contribution in the economic development. The second half of the 20th century witnesses cases of gradual increase in the economic impact of the higher education institutions through the use of various tools – business incubators, science parks, professors of practice, cooperation with industry, development of entrepreneurship among students, etc. This phenomenon is conceptualized as an entrepreneurial university. The beginning of the 21st century implies these practices to be implemented on a regular basis. The panel discussion speakers will present their visions of increasing the university impact in economy and approaches to this impact evaluation.

Chair: Martha Russell, Professor, Executive Director, MediaX, Stanford University, USA «University’s Economic Impact»

Issues and topics for discussion:

  • Can we consider transformation in an entrepreneurial university as an essential condition to increase the economic impact of the university? Is there any other option?
  • Does the increase of the university economic impact suggest a new university role as of a center for entrepreneurial development in the region? If so, how is it possible?
  • What kind of relationships between rapid economic growth, education and well-being?
  • Can cooperation with industry and science parks increase the economic impact of universities?
  • Does evaluation of the university economic impact show university contribution to GDP, job creation, export volume, university-industry cooperation income share?

WORKSHOP 1. OPEN INNOVATION: TRENDS, AGENDA, IMPACT

Venue: TUSUR, Scientific Council Hall (40 Lenin Prospect)

Henry Chesbrough’s concept of open innovation and his insights into open innovation models have restructured the world of research and development (R&D) shifting it to search and development (S&D). Organizations are rapidly reshaping their innovation processes moving from a «closed» inhouse R&D to an «open model» where ideas flow in and out of organizations to advance the development of new technologies.Innovation is spreading geographically, engaging a diverse range of stakeholders and extending from technology to service and business model innovation. In other words, innovation is becoming more open, collaborative and creative.The workshop will be illustrated by case studies on innovative business models.

Chair: Tatiana Schofield, The Founder and Managing Director of Synergy lab, UK «Open Innovation: trends, agenda, impact»

 

Key workshop questions to be addressed:

  • What effect open innovation has on the development and growth of university, its research, education and translational activities?
  • What are the key trends we observe to remain competitive?
  • Intellectual Property and Open Innovation: Friends or Foes?
  • Innovation in clusters

Panel discussion 2: «University-business collaboration: cooperative education»

Venue: TSU National Scientific Library, Roundtable Hall (34a Lenin Prospect)

Traditional university education has not offered much practical experience for students looking for jobs in business and industry. A few universities developed cooperative education programs that extensively integrated work experience with educational programs. Historically this approach has had less prestige. It was focused primarily on educating students to fit the requirements of existing large businesses. As society focuses more and more on innovation and entrepreneurship, there is a growing need to properly educate young entrepreneurs, both in theory and practice domains.

Chair: Daniel Satinsky, Vice President for Business Development, Foresight Science & Technology, President of the Board of U.S. Russia Chamber of Commerce of New England, Inc., USA

Issues and topics for discussion:

  • What can we learn from the experience of cooperative education programs?
  • How are those programs being adapted to new practices in entrepreneurial education?
  • Traditional universities are being asked to provide practical training in entrepreneurship, often without having the experiential base or connections to do so. How is the interaction of universities and business/industry adapting to these challenges?
  • What role does government play in creating cooperative educational programs?

WORKSHOP 2. THEORY AND ASSESSMENT OF ENTREPRENEURIAL EDUCATION

Venue: TUSUR, Scientific Council Hall (40 Lenin Prospect)

This workshop will provide attendees with a basic understanding of the Intention Model (EIM), a leading theory guiding research on entrepreneurship psychology, and a valuable approach to the assessment of entrepreneurship education and training.The workshop will begin with a presentation of how the EIM mediates the effects of education, skills and experience. Education courses and activities only influence the intention to be an entrepreneur if they first influence both student confidence in their capabilities and the perceived value they expect to receive if they are successful. The absence of any indirect effects means that if a program does not change either student attraction to entrepreneurship and innovation, or student confidence that they can perform the necessary tasks, one will have little or no effect at all on their future behavior.

This understanding allows instructors both to design improved entrepreneurial courses and activities, and to accurately assess whether those educational activities are successful. Time will be spent on the guidelines for writing items that together form a measure of specific forms of self-efficacy, and those attending will then be asked to form groups to work together to write their own items on capabilities of interest to them. Following a work period, participants will present their items for group discussion.

In closing, a short presentation will describe the steps in conducting pre-test/post-test panel studies using self-efficacy, and what are the most commonly used statistical tests to evaluate any change.

Workshop Learning Goals:

  • To review the Entrepreneurship Intention Model, its origins, how it is used, and the evidence that narrowly defined self-efficacy predicts future behavior
  • To present the use of existing self-efficacy scales for the study of technology-based innovation and entrepreneurship
  • To survey the most common statistical tests for determining self-efficacy change
  • To conduct group activities, assisting participants to develop their own scales

WORKSHOP 3. BIOMEDICAL INNOVATIONS MANAGEMENT: RUSSIAN AND WORLD CASES

Venue: TSU National Scientific Library, Conference Hall (34a Lenin Prospect)

BioMedical innovations management is becoming a challenge for each country. It is connected to complicities, safeties and risks followed up them. How different actors of Triple Helix relations understand these concepts? What differences are between countries and between actors? The role of biomedical innovations management in addressing social problems in Russia and the world will be discussed during the workshop. The representatives of the different fields and sectors will come together: medical practitioners and scientists, members of state organizations and high-tech companies, staff members of non-commercial organizations working in biomedicine, including foreign ones, as well as sociologists and anthropologists. Such inclusive approach is important for analyzing the innovations in biomedicine and for understanding of the processes, difficulties and risks in this field.

Panel discussion 3: «The Triple Helix and rise of new high technology industries»

Venue: Pushkin’s Tomsk Scientific Library, Audience 45 (14 Karl Marx Street)

The development of new high technology industries based on «breakthrough» technologies has been widely discussed in the last few years. Such attention is well-deserved as advanced technologies – such as such as 3D-printing, biotechnology, robotics – create new markets and industries, promote operational efficiency, competitive growth in certain industries and national economies in general. With their potential to drastically upgrade the workflow, facility management methods and the skills of the workforce, these technologies often drive changes in the economic setup.

New industries illustrate evolutionary changes that have occurred in the Triple Helix model. New high technology industries represent both service and production novelties. They are based on new organizational processes, for example mass customization and localization. Customization envisages transferring certain functions related to a finished product technological design to suppliers, and therefore it becomes essential to obtain suppliers’ constant feedback which can be taken into account in subsequent manufacturing. This raises demand for new qualification of professionals. Hence, relationships between industry, small innovative companies, universities, research institutes change by becoming more diverse and flexible. Governments in different countries try to address these changes.

Chair: Dr. Irina G. Dezhina, Head of Research Group on Science and Industrial Policy, Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech), Moscow, Russia

Issues and topics for discussion:

  • What are the key characteristics of new high technology industries?
  • What do new industries change most of all in the relationship government-universities-industry?
  • What are the country differences in regulation and government support for new high technology industries?
  • How the Triple Helix model may help in development of high technology industries in Russia?

WORKSHOP 5. THINGTANK: THING-DRIVEN INNOVATION (IDEAS LAB, CENTER OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND INNOVATION, SKOLTECH)
Venue: Pushkin’s Tomsk Scientific Library, Audience 53 (14 Karl Marx Street) Advent of the Internet of Things (in which the data produced by ‘things’ will soon outweigh the data produced by humans) is likely to transform many of the established innovation processes. The rapid growth of the number of sensors highlights the speed and magnitude of this upcoming change; growing from 10 million consumer-oriented sensors in 2007 to almost 10 billion sensors in 2013, and is forecasted to surpass 1 trillion sensors within a decade.In this workshop we present findings of the ThingTank research project that uses a combination of field studies, object instrumentation and artificial intelligence to listen and learn from what ‘things’ tell about their use, reuse and deviant repurpose, harvesting this data to inspire idea generation, fabrication, rapid prototyping. Much of the rhetoric for investment into Internet of Things platforms is to identify cost saving and process efficiencies (e.g., vehicle manufacturers), to track goods within large networks (e.g., logistics companies), or to monitor the health and safety of systems (e.g., aircraft manufacturers) within a streamlined process of production. But as networked objects become more common, the massive amounts of data that they collect will soon outweigh what we know about these objects – and thus about ourselves. As these databases of objects intermingle with our own data shadows, it won’t be long before the objects around us begin to make suggestions about what ‘might be’ desirable. ThingTank aims to interrogate artifacts’ shared use (and abuse) and to elicit new insights outside of a streamlined process of production.

Chair: Neil Rubens, Adjunct Professor, Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech); Visiting Scholar, Media X, Stanford University; Assistant Professor, University of Electro-Communications, Tokyo, Japan

Key workshop questions to be addressed:

  • How might the Internet of Things affect the innovation process?
  • Innovation process and the role of people, things, data, sensors, and AI

WORKSHOP 7. CREATING VALUE FOR LOCAL, GLOBAL AND SECTOR IMPACT: ANALYZING AND LEVERAGING THE POWER OF RELATIONSHIP NETWORKS

Venue: Pushkin’s Tomsk Scientific Library, Audience 48 (14 Karl Marx Street)

Relationships are resources for co-creating value in innovation ecosystems. Networks of entrepreneurs, executives, and investors complement the networks of innovators and orchestrators in accelerating the launch of new initiatives, the growth of new companies, and their assimilation into regional and global economies. Talent, information and financial resources flow through these networked relationships. This workshop provides a conceptual foundation of relationship networks and innovation ecosystems, through which Finland is described at three levels of the innovation ecosystem: established enterprises, growth companies, and startups. This scene is continuously evolving, as relationships between individuals and organizations change. Participants will experience hands-on interaction with visual network tools to explore the relationship infrastructures of new and emerging companies and their relational capital. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss best practice growth strategies and identify business models and relationship patterns for network development.

Chair: Martha Russell, Professor, Executive Director, MediaX, Stanford University, USA

Key workshop questions to be addressed:

  • Who are the new companies entering the Finnish economy?
  • How are their ecosystem relationships (knowledge, people and financial flows) changing the business?
  • Where are the new companies and their entrepreneurs coming from? From which countries? Which sectors? Which universities?
  • What is the role of government innovation programs in accelerating growth?
  • Where are the new companies getting financial resources to develop and grow?

Venue: Pushkin’s Tomsk Scientific Library, Audience 401 (14 Karl Marx Street)

The social entrepreneurship becomes a growing trend in the world. The number of social entrepreneurs increases rapidly. The leading universities do not stand aside and launch programs both for research and support of the social entrepreneurship and the social entrepreneurs.

The Russian universities joint this trend as well – SPSU and MSU launched special educational programs for social entrepreneurs, HSE initiated special Center for social entrepreneurship and social innovations, ITMO implements actively the social entrepreneurship as a tool for cooperation with the authorities and the business representatives of the city.

Chair: Sergey Golubev, consultant on the development of social entrepreneurship and social innovation, Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration, Russia

Key workshop questions to be addressed:

  • Why universities dealing with the issue of social entrepreneurship?
  • How can social entrepreneurship allow the university to establish relationships with the local community, stakeholders and the state?
  • What are the mechanisms used by the universities for the development of social entrepreneurship? What hinders and what helps universities in this?

WORKSHOP 9. GRASSROOTS INNOVATION: PROSPECTS FOR THE TRIPLE HELIX MODEL

Venue: Pushkin’s Tomsk Scientific Library, Audience 48 (14 Karl Marx Street)

The study of innovation systems within the concept of the Triple Helix Model (THM) has taken place mainly in the framework of formal institutions and organizations. Since the early 2000s, there has been growing interest and research on the feasibility and applicability of THM in Developing Countries (DCs). Key discussion points range from the challenges of building synergy between the major National System of Innovation (NSI) actors, i.e. university, business and government, to the prospects of THM in DCs in promoting innovation, sustainable development, science, technology and innovation (STI) policies and public policymaking.However, there still exists a substantial gap in these studies, attention to which can significantly enhance the THM. We know that a considerable part of developing countries’ economies is informal and operates within the unorganized sector. This would make no difference for the THM if these two facts did not exist: the presence of innovative activity outside the organized sector and the integration of this innovative activity in the formal system of the country, as in the case of India.

Innovative activity outside the formal sector, referred to grassroots innovation (GRI) in most of the scientific literature, inevitably leads to changes in the role and functions of the main actors of any NSI network. With no universally accepted definition of GRI in STI literature yet, the introduction of the workshop will include short explanation of GRI by posing questions such as: Is GRI a phenomenon? What are its specific features and drivers? How is GRI being framed and conceptualized?

Chair: Elena Litsareva, Professor, Department of International Politics, National Research Tomsk State University, Russia

Key workshop questions to be addressed:
Drawing from examples of countries such as India, Nigeria and Russia (as representatives of three major regions – Asia, Africa, and Europe), the workshop will address the following topics:

  • GRI as a new actor of innovation activity within the NSI network. Case studies from India, Nigeria and Russia
  • GRI and NSI nexus: the role of universities, business and government (THM)
  • GRI in the context of DCs. Why it is important to consider it within the THM?

WORKSHOP 11. THE CHALLENGES FOR UNIVERSITY-INDUSTRY PARTNERSHIPS

Venue: Tomsk Special Economic Zonе, Engineering center building, 6 floor, Conference Hall, Audience 608 (3 Razvitiya prospect)

In the world of globalising spheres, local actors face an increasing challenge of marginalisation. Entrepreneurial Universities extend their sphere of influence globally, reaching out for the international market and in pursuit of global strategies. Firms on the other hand, that are facing global competition attempt to increase competitiveness through localised interactions, networking, collaboration, containing knowledge spillovers and capturing synergies from clustering and co-location strategies. Are the spheres of Industry and University in the Triple Helix innovation model bound to disengage from their fragile cooperation practices for knowledge transfer?

Key workshop questions to be addressed:

  • Reviewing the past and the current models for University-Industry interactions and partnerships
  • Outlining the current role of universities in successful, emerging or declining industry clusters and regions
  • Reviewing the micro, meso, macro level of interactions and partnerships between researchers and marketers
  • Reflecting on the impact of competitive forces in the university domain and the increasing collaboration in the new knowledge based collaborative global economy
  • Assessing the need for and the emergence of knowledge brokers and their intermediation practices
  • Evaluating the barriers for deepening University – Industry partnerships and new emerging trends
  • Examples of transformations from academic research to value-added market products and services and the contributions from University and Industry
  • Intermediation by knowledge brokers and the challenges to confidentiality for the third parties

Panel discussion 6: «City innovation policy and Innovation district»

Venue: Tomsk Special Economic Zonе, Engineering center building, 6 floor, Conference Hall, Audience 608 (3 Razvitiya prospect)

The panel will focus on the growing trend by city governments to create urban innovation districts as an economic development strategy for core areas of former industrial cities. The main question for the panel will be whether city government-sponsored innovation programs can successfully support the creation of new companies, jobs and economic growth in these post-industrial urban centers? Are urban development areas a path to the future or a waste of tax payer money? The ideology of Silicon Valley is that it was created without any significant government role or assistance. The creation story most often told by Silicon Valley is of private, entrepreneurial initiative, within a collaborative culture of practical science, applied through continuous evolution of startup companies and financed by an active private investor community. Whether this is completely accurate or not, the fact is that no intentional, deliberate copies of Silicon Valley have been successful. As a counter example, the Triple Helix framework was developed out of an historical examination of how the interaction of government, business and universities resulted in a dynamic innovation ecosystem in the Boston, Massachusetts area. This seeming contradiction leads back to the focus of the panel and the question of the value of emerging urban Innovation districts. Each of the panelists will not only describe what they are doing, but why they think that their approach will be successful in transitioning their city to into the next-stage post industrial economy. What can we learn from their experience? How does the Triple Helix approach apply? Why should we believe they will be successful?

Chair: Daniel Satinsky, Vice President for Business Development, Foresight Science & Technology, President of the Board of U.S. Russia Chamber of Commerce of New England, Inc., USA

Issues and topics for discussion:

  • Why are cities developing innovation districts – specific drivers and expected outcomes?
  • City innovation districts development: world cases
  • How do innovation districts differ from science and technology parks, incubators, and tax free zones?
  • What are the relative roles of government, universities and business in creation and operation of innovation districts?
  • How can cities support a decent spread of the benefits of innovation between various groups and stakeholders?
