The program designed to inspire and connect people across Europe. We will share different examples of quadruple helix collaborations and initiatives and get an overview of the latest academic insights. All sessions are a mix of a talk and a discussion with Q&A. The outcome of the day is a better understanding of the important elements for succes and practical experience from collegues around Europe.
Academic perspectives and insights by Prof. David Campbell – Vienna University
Science plays an important role in researching both the current collaborations and future possibillities. In this talk, Professor David Campbell will share his latest insights, including organizational structures that facilitate new collaborations and the step from quadruple to quintuple helix.

Quadruple Helix & bread – by Andy Haddon from the Big River Bakery in Newcastle upon Tyne
On what scale can I actually make an impact?
That question led Andy Haddon to founding the Big River Bakery after an entrepreneurial journey from corporate food logistics startups in China to economic development practitioner, academic and local food entrepreneur back in his native North East England. The challenge he set himself was to be a catalyst to create a fair and affordable food system and this challenge led him to consider deeply how to create change in the complex global food system through a quadruple helix approach. He decided the best approach was to ‘change the world one loaf at a time’ and start with a community bakery.
Big River Bakery provides an environment where tangible examples of quadruple helix can be trialled and developed through an iterative and collaborative approach with many partners. This has allowed the bakery to have much greater impact than working alone including PhD students, local government employability programmes, business incubation, volunteering, addressing food poverty and employing people with significant barriers to employment e.g autism. In this talk, he will share what he learned and and how we can use those insights.
