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 - graduate students with at least 2 years of research experience, post docs and early career junior faculty members - are invited to send in their application.
