Collaborative Project Business Model Innovation in Ecosystems

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


The research shed light on how collaborative project Business Model Innovation (BMI) can enable innovation for more energy production with less costs within offshore wind park ecosystems. The empirical qualitative research took place from September 2017 to June 2018 with 4 enterprises in an initial individual 1-day meeting and three 1-day network meetings within the nearshore wind park energy value network.

The findings highlight the essentials for successful collaborative BMI:
• Antecedent heterogeneous preferred individual and organisational behaviors.
• Frontload of collaborative project BMI for knowledge creation in subsequent project execution.
An overview on these findings is provided through the graphic illustrative model called ‘Project FrontEco BMI’. The underlying dynamic processes created suggestions for value creation, higher reliability and faster flow through the port requiring less investments. Hereby an interesting contribution is made to shed light on the hitherto experienced black box in ecosystem literature for application by offshore wind practitioners
