KIN Summer School

Each year, at the end of the Spring semester, we organize in collaboration with prof.dr. Samer Faraj of McGill University Montreal, the KIN Summer School. During 4 intensive days, a group of about 20 international scholars (late PhD and junior faculty) engage with a group of 5 senior highly renowned international scholars to learn more about KIN-related research and interactively discuss research in the field of IT, Knowledge and Innovation. Participants engage in intensive sessions with faculty focusing on recent theoretical and methodological advances and they are asked to be well prepared. The format provides ample opportunity to also discuss related topics such as reviewing and getting published. In small groups we will further discuss participants’ own work in progress.

The teaching faculty consists of international professors well known for their research in the field. The following faculty members have been teaching during the past editions: Michel Avital (CBS), Charles Steinfield (MSU), Patrick Cohendet (HEC Montreal), Natalia Levina (NYU), Paul Pavlou (Temple), Niki Panteli (Royal Holloway), Emmanuelle Vaast (McGill University), Andrea Carugati (Aarhus University), Jennifer Whyte (Imperial College London), Davide Nicolini (Warwick Business School), Raghu Garud (Penn State University), Ulrike Schulze (Cox Business School, SMU), Michael Barrett (Judge Business School, Cambridge University), Paul Carlile (Boston University), and Paul Leonardi (University of California Santa Barbara).

In 2017 the KIN Summer School will take place from June 26 – June 29. This year’s teaching faculty consists of:  Chrisanthi Avgerou (London School of Economics), Brian Pentland (MSU), Samer Faraj (McGill University, Canada), Paul Leonardi (University of California Santa Barbara), Marleen Huysman (KIN Research, VU University Amsterdam) and Hans Berends (KIN Research, VU University Amsterdam).

The KIN Summer School is organized in collaboration with our graduate school: you can find more information on their site.
