Some Final Words…

Prof. Hanwoo Park

Dear WATEF Members,

I do not want to start this speech with a cliché, to look back on the past years and thank those who helped, but I will live my life cherishing the memories of all of you who have been with me and the association during the past 10 years. Thank you always.

As the small group that started in a small corner of Korea grew into a full-fledged association, the slogan we chanted was: Globally Excellent, Locally Friendly. As the international event DISC expanded to Seoul and overseas, and interdisciplinary seminars continued, our voices spread like echoes.

The WATEF vision and ambitions will not end here today. I hope you will actively participate in the great history that the new president and executive will write in the future.

June 27, 2021

Prof. Hanwoo Park
Founder and President
World Association of Triple-hElix ​and Future studies (WATEF)

NodeXL Insight Award 2021

The World Association for Triple Helix & Future Strategy Studies (WATEF) is pleased to announce the inauguration of the annual “NodeXL Network Insight Award” for data-driven studies on social innovation as of September 2018. The WATEF has played an important role in introducing NodeXL, an easy-to-use data collection, social media network analysis and visualization tool, in East Asia in the past five years. A leader in IT infrastructure, as of September 2018, Korea became the third-largest user base country for NodeXL and actually surpassed the U.S. and the U.K. in terms of users per capita.

The WATEF was established to contribute to the development of the Triple Helix in Korean society with data as its foundation. Evolving into a “big-data society” is challenging. Dynamic and consistent cooperation is necessary between the academic community, as the main body of knowledge production, corporations that operate within the marketing economy, and the government in charge of coordination and regulation.

To further advance awareness of the value of social network analysis, promote the purpose of our annual conference, and encourage the aims of the Triple Helix Society, the NodeXL Network Insight Award has been established as a symbol of data research excellence. This award will be presented to a published or unpublished paper that utilizes NodeXL or social media network and content analysis as part of its core methodology and visualization. Other visualization tools may also be used. Unpublished award winners may submit their papers to the Journal of Contemporary Eastern Asia after presentation by the WATEF.

We are grateful for the support of individuals and institutions in favor of the intent of this award. For further details, please contact the Committee at [email protected]
