Application Deadline KIN Summer School 2018 - 1 April
Innovation has become a major topic of study in the field of information systems. These innovations are mainly due to increased knowledge-intensity of organizational performance, the growing distributed and mobile forms of working and organizing, and the emergence of digitalization in processes and products. 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. Each year, a different selection of this group of scholars come together in Amsterdam.

Building on the success of last year’s Summer Schools, this year’s workshop is designed to help develop the insights and skills of PhD and early career researchers in theory development and methodologies within this multi-disciplinary field of knowledge, information and innovation (KIN) research. The purpose is to expand academic insights and skills in order to conduct and publish valuable research.
