Since 1996, The International Triple Helix Conference has grown into a major venue of discussion, research, and policy development for the roles of tripartite innovation agents. The 2017 conference will be held in Daegu, South Korea, 14-16, September, 2017 under the theme “4th industrial Revolution, Design Thinking and Triple Helix”. This year, the conference touches on the so-called Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) driving most up-to-date innovation at the techno-human interfaces, examining the Triple Helix institutions are adapting themselves to these new challenges. These 4IR technologies and various changes induced by them are increasingly casting doubt on the adaptive capacity of individuals and institutions with the threats to human identity, social stability, and economic security. When machines replace not only repetitive labor but advanced intellectual work, what is left for humans? How can existing institutions of the Triple Helix tackle techno-human challenges? This year’s conference invites the Triple Helix community to rethink the roles of the government, industries, and universities in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
