In order to involve our academic and business networks to create an even better understanding around digital innovation and transformation the content is published in our blogs/news section. 
These services help organizations to continuously further develop the knowledge of their employees with the latest academic insights, to look beyond the hypes, to recruit digital talents and to learn from other companies facing similar challenges in the digital landscape.

Our mission

We have:

  • KINTalks
  • News and Blogs
  • Events


The concept is simple. KINTalks is an event where inspiring practitioners are invited to talk about their work experience in the field of innovation, digital technology, business and/or design. Key here is sharing knowledge and firing up the debate.

It seems that there are (too) little moments where academics and practitioners meet. KINTalks helps: 

1) to encourage a conversation around shared interests; 

2) to learn from each other and 

3) to network and nurture lasting relationships. Overall, it is an opportunity to get inspired and energized.

Each KINTalks event includes one or two speakers and an audience of researchers and other interested people. Each speaker presents for (about) 30-45 min. After the talk, the audience has the opportunity to pose questions. The presentations promise to be creative and thought-provoking, sparking a conversation that we continue afterward with drinks.

The talks will take place at VU University Amsterdam (Main building, De Boelelaan 1105, 5th floor). Please note that participation in KIN Talks is free of charge, but registration for KIN Talks is required.

If you have further inquiries, please do not hesitate to contact us (kintalks.sbe@vu.nl).

We look forward to welcoming you to our KINTalks!

The KIN Talks are organised by (from left to right): Lauren, Dennis, Jovana, and Julia.
