The KIN Center for Digital Innovation has been established to bring research and practice closer together. Our mission is to help organizations organize the development and management of digital innovations in effective and responsible ways. We do so by building on our network and experiences with academia, government, and industry.


"You can only truly understand the consequences of digital technologies if you study the development and use of technologies in practice. We want to use our knowledge and experience to help organizations to effectively and responsibly manage and organize the development and use of digital innovations."

Prof. Dr. Marleen Huysman


Bringing together knowledge from our A-level academic research with practical insights from organizations makes it possible to truly grasp the often unexpected ways in which digital innovations come to life. We see learning as a mutual process between academia and practice. Hence we are always looking for collaboration with different organizations to study new digital innovations in practice.


Sign up for our professional workshop on Creativity & Design for Digital Innovation to learn from our research and real life cases on the challenges and opportunities of cultivating creativity for digital innovation in your organization!
