KIN is all about Digital Innovation. We are fascinated by the ways in which the use and development of digital innovations affect the way we work and organize.

We conduct research, organize consortia, provide executive education, and host masterclasses on a variety of topics such as data & analytics, creativity & design, innovation processes, crowdsourcing, and much more. Our mission is to make the world a better place in the digital era: we bring together academia and practice to truly understand the social and long-term consequences of digital innovations in organizations.
