A professional learning network involves making connections and building relationships with other like-minded organisations for sharing ideas, resources, and discuss challenges around digitalisation and innovation. A learning network is an opportunity to constantly learn and become exposed to new practices and business cases that can give valuable insight on how to navigate the complexities of digital innovation.
For our KIN Business network members we leverage our own network to create inspirational meetings that will leave you with new connections and fresh ideas.
- We will leverage our academic network with professors working around the topic of digital innovation from leading schools around the world and invite them to our meetings (including e.g. our colleagues from e.g. MIT, Cambridge and Copenhagen Business School)
- We invite our business members around the topic of digital innovation (e.g. Philips, Bosch, Tata Steel, Police)
An example activity that helps developing a network:
KIN Talks: an opportunity interact with diverse industry specialists that tell their story what challenges challenges they are facing and how they take them in order to navigate the complexities of digital innovation.
Several times a year, we host KIN Talks; a series of talks during which managers, entrepreneurs, and policy makers discuss novel ideas and practical insights related to digital innovations.
