Fostering top-quality research: insights from the KIN Summer School 2024

4 July 2024
From 30th June to 3rd July the KIN Summer School brought together leading experts and junior researchers to delve into the impact of digital and intelligent technologies. This year we welcomed Nick Berente, Pamela Hinds, Vern Glaser, Marleen Huysman and Hans Berends — internationally recognized faculty members in information technology, innovation, and organization.

Over four intensive days, twenty-three participants from the US, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Norway, Austria, Australia, Singapore and Finland engaged with leading experts to explore the impact of digital and intelligent technologies on work and organizations. 

The KIN Summer School is designed to help doctoral and post-doctoral students, pre-tenure faculty and early career researchers enhance their academic skills for conducting and publishing valuable research. Every year, we invite a different group of faculty members, considered the top international scholars in the field. 

For this 12th edition we covered the topics of AI@work (speaker — Marleen Huysman, KIN Center for Digital Innovation, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam), Technology and Institutions (speaker — Nick Berente, University of Notre Dame, US), Distributed and Hybrid Work (speaker — Pamela Hinds, Stanford University, US), Algorithmic Organizing (speaker — Vern Glaser, University of Alberta, Canada) and Process Research (speaker — Hans Berends, KIN Center for Digital Innovation, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam). The School participants had the opportunity to discuss their work in progress with the faculty and received feedback on their own research. 

Participants immersed themselves in the latest research literature on knowledge, information technology, and innovation in organizational contexts. They honed their skills in integrating diverse perspectives and research methods to critically analyze current organizational challenges. Additionally, they learned how the program's literature relates to their research projects and gained an understanding of the criteria for conducting high-quality research.

The KIN Summer School is organized by the KIN Center for Digital Innovation of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam together with the Amsterdam Business Research Institute (ABRI). The information about the 13th edition of the KIN Summer School will follow soon.

Building connections on Amsterdam's canals

Building connections on Amsterdam's canals

The traditional boat ride enhanced the experience, taking it beyond the university walls. With the scenic views of Amsterdam's canals, participants found the perfect setting to expand their academic networks and forge stronger connections with peers. We hope these newfound connections will blossom into future productive collaborations and professional opportunities for junior researchers.
