Triple Helix 9 Conference Best Student Paper Award

Purpose
For the first time in the 15-year long history of the Triple Helix conference series, the Triple Helix 9 International Conference offers the Best Student Paper Award to recognize excellence among its student participants and provide them with an opportunity to obtain visibility in the international scientific community and win recognition for their achievements. The Best Student Paper Award aims at bringing prestige to the conference, as well as to the award recipient.

The Triple Helix 9 International Conference promotes and disseminates research and applications among students and professionals interested in theory, methodologies and applications of the Triple Helix concept. It also provides a forum for the exchange of new ideas in this innovation area. It thus aims at creating a vibrant platform for dialogue between the institutional spheres of University, Industry and Government and new bridges for advancing knowledge and cooperation.

The Best Student Paper Award
One winner for the Best Student Paper Award will be selected. The winner will receive a $500 award, an award certificate and recognition on the conference website. In case of a tie, the award will be split between the papers with equal scores received in the evaluation process. The winner will be announced at the conference Gala Dinner, to be held on July 13, 2011, 19:30-22:30, at the Stanford Faculty Club.
