Objectives: This ESR project investigates the technologies that drive ecosystem emergence and what they have in common, particularly in terms of the innovation process. Research suggests that certain technologies may enable the birth of ecosystems yet there are very few studies on ecosystem emergence. This topic becomes highly relevant in the age of hypoconnectivity and accelerating speed of technological development.

Expected results: 

  1. In-depth understanding of technologies that generate innovation ecosystem based on inductive case studies.
  2. Theoretical framework determining the antecedents of ecosystems emergence.
  3. Quantitatively validated model of innovation ecosystems emergence.
