Permanent innovation in open eco-systems
An open innovation ecosystem (entrepreneurial, territorial, sectoral, etc.) mobilizes a body of knowledge and skills resulting from learning processes and integrated into its memory. This knowledge must be constantly enriched, hence the questions of the “optimal” degree of openness of the production ecosystem and the effectiveness of its governance. This issue of Innovations. Revue d’économie et de management de l’innovation brings together articles that address the need for innovations, especially of an organizational and managerial nature, in open production ecosystems. They analyze the organization of work, the factors of transition and transformation, and the place of producer and consumer actors within the networks. Research on the functioning of open production ecosystems is abundant, sometimes suggesting that they are ideal organizations for generating innovation based on collaboration.
