About CIYA

The Continuous Innovation Young Academics (CIYA) workshop is conceived as a way to support the career development of young scholars in the field of continuous innovation by teaching and sharing with them major skills needed in an academic career. Important skills are related to:

  • Supervising MSc and PhD students
  • Teaching innovation to MSc and MBA students
  • Developing theoretically rigorous and managerially relevant research on innovation management
  • Writing and reviewing scientific articles

Each year one of the above subjects is developed on a rolling base.
At the same time, the initiative is aimed at developing the community of young CINet scholars, keeping the network alive and providing opportunities to meet and discuss relevant topics.
