Sabine Go receives grant for international collaboration
Sabine Go, researcher at the School of Business and Economics (department of Accounting), has received a grant for international collaboration from NWO (the Dutch Organisation for Scientific Research) for the project 'Risky Business: pricing, governance, and integration in European insurance markets (c. 1400-c. 1870).
Go will collaborate with Professor Giovanni Ceccarelli (Associate Professor at the Department of Economics, Università degli Studi di Parma) and Adrian Leonard (Associate director of the Centre for Financial History, University of Cambridge) on the project, which is focused on the development of marine insurance prices.

Marine insurances have played an important role in the growth of world trade since the fourteenth century. In various countries, insurance markets emerged where merchants could purchase insurance to share and limit the risks of their trade. Says Go: "Several scholars have researched individual European insurance markets. We will now for the first time collect and integrate all the data they have collected, so that we can analyse these markets over a long period of time and study how they influenced each other. We will make all of the data contributed available freely on a web site hosted by the Mansutti Foundation for insurance history. The project will begin in the spring of 2019 and run for 18 months.

Summary of a successful KINTalk by Fighter pilot Patrick Vreeburg
For the newest edition of KINTalks, KIN invited lieutenant colonel Patrick Vreeburg, working as Chief Air C2 Cell at the Operation Center of the Air Force Command of the Ministry of Defense (MoD) to talk about open and digital innovation at the MoD.
Patrick explained that the MoD has developed several open and digital innovation initiatives to improve its ability to provide peace and safety in the Netherlands and contribute to stability and security worldwide. In the recent years, this has become an increasingly pressing matter as terroristic organizations that form a danger for peace and security are quickly becoming more skilled in innovation themselves. During his talk Patrick highlighted several of the innovation initiatives the MoD is involved in to remain on top of technology development such as the warfare centers the MoD created to renew and improve military operations, the improved missile programs or the open innovations initiatives they have developed to initiate innovation ecosystems.
