Chancellor Michael Harris, IU Kokomo, Triple Helix, UEDA, 2011, Economic Development and Regional Transformation, Indiana Commission for Higher Education, ICHE, פרופסור וצ'נסלור מייקל הריס

  1. 1. The Triple Helix Achieving Success in Regional Transformation Michael Harris, Ph.D., Chancellor - Indiana University Kokomo Presented at: University Economic Development Association Summit: Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Talent October 11, 2011
  2. 2. Challenge: Global Disruption and Economic Slow-Down • Almost a perfect storm – From an economy of traditional industrial manufacturing, based on natural resources and labor, to an economy of knowledge driven by innovation and entrepreneurship – Increased global competitiveness • In an economy of knowledge, it is no longer viable to rely on policies which focus on supporting and relocating existing industries
  3. 3. Challenge: Global Disruption and Economic Slow-Down • Questioning the ‘American Dream’ – Varies by education and income
  4. 4. Challenge: Achieving Regional Transformation and Economic Growth • Once-in-a-lifetime opportunity • The future is in abundance • Maximizing opportunities, not minimizing risks • Leadership is the most crucial element • Paradigm shift – The Triple Helix – A mindset – university/campus, industry, and governments collaborating through a new mindset – achieve a competitive region – a high concentration of knowledge, skills, innovation, and entrepreneurship capacity
  5. 5. The Triple Helix • As regionalism is becoming key to competitiveness, the role of regional universities/campuses increases • The role of regional universities/campuses have evolved from focusing primarily on student success, research, and service, to incorporating ‘stewards of place’ and a source of innovation • In many cases, the university/campus must become the regional leader by initiating and facilitating the Triple Helix framework
  6. 6. The Triple Helix • Achieving regional transformation
  7. 7. Universities Differentiation in Mission • Differentiation in mission between an intensive research university (ranking, prestige) and a regional university/campus
  8. 8. Examples from Implementing the Triple Helix • Developing a biogas project in Flint, Michigan; Kettering University (GMI), Swedish Biogas, Michigan Economic Development Corporation, Swedish agency on energy, City of Flint, US Federal government
  9. 9. Examples from Implementing the Triple Helix • Creating and Sustaining a Culture of Entrepreneurship at Kettering University – Entrepreneurship Across the Curriculum (EAC) – developing a mindset • IU Kokomo is intentionally leading an effort to transform North-Central Indiana – Participating and developing a foundation for an economy of knowledge and enhanced innovation and entrepreneurship
  10. 10. Partial List of Examples from IU Kokomo – “Transforming the region” – one of three major themes – Installation Ceremony – Facilitating a sustainable dialogue with governments and business leaders – Convened a Mayor’s Summit – Brought together community leaders and regional organizations – Hosted the ‘Great Connect’ bringing 500 local leaders together to share their work in transforming the region
  11. 11. Partial List of Examples from IU Kokomo (continued) – Commissioned a regional benchmark study – Intentional and relevant academic programs with regional input – Greater Kokomo Economic Development Alliance (GKEDA) – Partners in Inventrek (incubator) – Club sports – NAIA • Indiana Chamber of Commerce – Kokomo the ‘2011 Community of the Year’
  12. 12. Lessons Learned • The paradigm shift is primarily a mindset • Regionalism is a necessary condition to compete in a global economy and economy of knowledge • Leadership, intentionality, and communication are key • Requires each organization to identify long-term benefits
  13. 13. Lessons Learned • A sustainable Triple Helix needs to be an on-going venture • The partnership must involve various levels and segments within each organization • Universities have an additional role to lead innovation and entrepreneurship both on campus and beyond
  14. 14. Sustaining the American Dream will require enhanced regionalism and courageous leadership, guided by the Triple Helix For sudden the worst turns the worst to the brave. - Browning Optimism is true moral courage. - Shackleton
