Episode Description:

This episode focuses on the ninth annual Triple Helix Conference, an event which is most often held in Europe, but which was held in 2011 at Stanford University in California. The aim of the conference is to foster innovative approaches to solving world problems by promoting greater cooperation between industry, government and academia. This is done by lectures, panels and games, as well as private meetings. In addition to on location footage from the conference itself, the show features two studio guests.

Keith Devlin is the founder and executive director of Stanford's H-STAR Institute, which hosted the conference, but he is perhaps best know for his frequent appearances on National Public Radio's "Weekend Edition" as "The Math Guy". He's won numerous scientific awards including the Carl Sagan Prize for Science Popularization, he's written 31 books, and he's been recognized by the California State Assembly for his innovative work.

Marina Ranga was the co-organizer of the Triple Helix Conference, and is a senior researcher at the H-STAR Institute. She has a Ph.D. in Science and Technology Policy Studies from Sussex University in the U.K., is a member of several United Nations commissions, and a consultant to the European Commission as well.

Martin Wasserman hosts.
