Technology and Innovation Community

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Technology and Innovation Community brings together scholars from different universities in the Netherlands, Belgium and beyond who share a strong interest in theory on technology and innovation, in particular from a management and organization studies background.


The community provides a regular forum to discuss theory-informed technology and innovation research. There is a considerable number of technology and innovation scholars in the Netherlands and Belgium; however, they are scattered across universities and disciplinary backgrounds. This community provides more opportunities for to discuss work with colleagues, benefit from collective experience, facilitate interaction, and feel inspired by each other’s work. Moreover, the forum can be used to connect with international technology and innovation scholars visiting the Netherlands or Belgium (e.g. invite them to participate as discussants).


The community meets about twice a year to discuss research-in-progress. Contributors do not present completed papers, but focus on manuscripts that still are in the making. These papers are circulated prior to the meetings. At the meetings, the community dissects the papers and gives in-depth comments with the purpose of helping improve the manuscripts.
