The Triple Helix is the world’s largest, completely student-run, non-profit organisation, that aims to communicate the importance of science to the public, by taking an interdisciplinary approach to the evaluation of its role and impact on society. Begun in 2004 at Cornell University, it currently contains 25 chapters at the most prominent universities in the U.S., Canada and Europe. Hundreds of students participate in our organisation and our alumni have gone on to become leaders in a wide array of fields, including science, business, engineering, medicine, law and ethics. Our flagship publication, the bi-annual Science in Society Review, and our online blog, The Triple Helix Online, provide research-based perspectives on pertinent scientific issues facing society today.
The chapter at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki was founded in October 2014 by Fotis Chatzisaris, Katerina Chatzisari, Theodora Panagiotidou and Errikos Kiladis and soon became one of the leading chapters in The Triple Helix network, due to the unique InnovationLab we organise, apart from the regular publications, bringing students in contact with accomplished scientists, innovators and entrepreneurs and inspiring them to start the next big thing!
