The CINet seminar on Research in continuous innovation

One of the great challenges for doctoral students is to develop publishable results from their research. This all starts with a well-designed research plan, followed by collecting and analyzing good data. Thus, the objective of the CINet PhD seminar on “researching continuous innovation” is to help students mastering the process of getting from a research idea, through a robust research design, good qualitative and/or quantitative data, to a publishable theoretical and/or managerial contribution, in the field of (continuous) innovation.

Work mode
The seminar features a combination of faculty teaching and student presentations, plenary sessions, and small-group work. The program is highly interactive and includes ample opportunity for exploring emerging themes in continuous innovation theory and methodology.

The seminar offers space to max. 16 doctoral students or other researchers developing a PhD thesis, who are researching continuous innovation or a related topic, and are in a relatively early phase of their studies.

Professor Harry Boer, Aalborg University, Denmark
