Update 23 March 2020

We would like to announce that due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the KIN Summer School 2020 is canceled.
This was indeed a very difficult decision which needed to be made.

The KIN Summer School 2021 is planned to take place from 11- 14 July with the same faculty, directly after EGOS Colloquium which will also be hosted at Vrije Universiteit. Therefore, we would encourage everyone to apply again next year!

We would like to wish you all the best in this very difficult period and hope to see you in 2021!

Digital innovation has become a major topic of study in the field of information systems and organization science. As a result, there is a need among scholars to understand in more detail how to study knowledge intensive practices that emerges from the interplay between (new) technologies and new ways of working as well as the management thereof. A significant group of scholars, spread over Europe and US/Canada, are using various practice and process approaches to study such new ways of working, innovating and organizing and publishes in a growing number of related international journals. During the KIN summer school, we bring together a different selection of scholars to share academic insights and experiences. During 4 intensive days participants and faculty will discuss research in the field of Digital Technology, Knowledge and Innovation. Each year we invite a different group of faculty members, considered as the international top scholars in the field. Also, each year we select 20 participants based on their fit with the topic and experience with research. Potential participants - Faculty Members, Young Faculty and Late Year PhDs - are invited to send in their application.
The 10th edition of the KIN Summerschool hosts the following international group of professors: Samer Faraj (McGill University, Canada), Hans Berends (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, NL), Marleen Huysman (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, NL), Stephen Barley (University of California Santa Barbara, USA) and Ann Majchrzak (University of Southern California - Marshall School of Business, USA).

The KIN Summer School is organized by the KIN Center for Digital Innovation of the VU University Amsterdam together with the Amsterdam Business Research Institute (ABRI).
