KIN - The Innovation Network

What is KIN?

KIN is a non-profit network of private, public and third sector organisations, supporting their efforts in becoming innovating organisations. The challenge to be fit for the future is demanding and effective practices are emerging. Our network is designed to support professionals to lead that change through practice, knowledge and skills development.

KIN membership provides organisations with access to a range of activities and resources including workshops, special themed meetings, member-only online resources, and access to WBS research.
