Typical to KIN is its ‘embedded research’: research in close collaboration with industry partners and the emphasis on discussing research. In the two monthly “KINcubator” sessions, we discuss our ongoing research projects, while the monthly ‘reading group’ sessions serve to discuss classics on a particular theory or perspective and during our seminars and workshops, academic scholars from other universities present their research. Each year at the end of the Spring semester, we organize the KIN Summer School during which around 20 international late PhD candidates and junior faculties engage with a group of five senior international scholars to learn more about KIN-related research.
Each year at the end of the Spring semester, we organize the KIN Summerschool. During 4 intensive days, a group of about 20 international scholars (late PhD and junior faculty) engage with five renowned international scholars to learn more about KIN-related research and interactively discuss research in the field of IT, Knowledge and Innovation. More information about the summer school can be found here.
The Technology and Innovation Community (TIC) was initiated by Hans Berends and Philipp Tuertscher and meets regularly to share and discuss theory-informed technology and innovation research. For a detailed description click here.
We frequently invite academic scholars to present their latest research either as part of our seminar series or in a one or two days workshop setting. We do this in collaboration with our Graduate School.
