Venue: Rm 5040, Abercrombie Building (H70)

Speaker: Professor Marleen Huysman, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

Title: A Collaborative Approach to Innovation Research: A Presentation about the KIN Research Group at VU, Amsterdam

Professor Huysman will discuss her experiences in establishing the Knowledge, Information, and Innovation (KIN) research group at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU). This innovative and multi-disciplinary research group takes an open, collaborative approach to investigating the development, use, implications and business value of digital innovations.

Typical to KIN is its ‘embedded research’: research in close collaboration with industry partners. Research is organized in projects where teams of PhD, junior and senior researchers conduct embedded inquiry. Engagement with industry is institutionalized through KINTalks: a series of seminars during which managers, entrepreneurs, and policy makers discuss novel ideas in relation to organizing for digital innovation. The annual Summer School serves to further connect students and early career researchers with cutting edge ideas and the international research community. In this seminar, Professor Huysman will discuss how the KIN research group was established and she will share some of her insights on what has been learned in the process. Questions and discussion are encouraged.

Bio: Professor Marleen Huysman is Head of KIN Research and Head of Information Systems, Logistics and Innovation Department at VU, Amsterdam. For more information:
