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 workshops (see archive), 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.

This KIN Summer School is organized by the KIN Research Group of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (www.kinresearch.nl) together with the Amsterdam Business Research Institute (ABRI). During 4 intensive days participants and faculty will discuss research in the field of IT, Knowledge and Innovation. The teaching faculty consists of an international group of professors, known for their research in the field: Chrisanthi Avgerou (London School of Economics); Brian Pentland (Michigan State University), Paul Leonardi (University of California Santa Barbara), Samer Faraj (McGill University, Canada), Hans Berends (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam) and Marleen Huysman (KIN Research, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam).

Participants will engage in intensive sessions with faculty focusing on recent theoretical and methodological advances and are asked to be well prepared; a list of 15 papers will be sent upon acceptance. The format provides ample opportunity to discuss related topics such as reviewing and getting published. In small groups we will also discuss participants’ own work in progress.
