Integrating platform competences toward network effects -project (acronym: iPlate) focuses on companies looking to tap into the network effects – using ecosystem and platforms value creation. The project identifies and strives toward unleashing platform competences that can be addressed with a concept of digital stack, presenting a list for technical, business as well as policy making capabilities (e.g., blockchain technology).
The results benefit Finnish firms in integrating their platform competences to reap the opportunities of network effects and ecosystems for platform development and management, and Finnish policy making in identifying what kinds of support in forms of processes, approaches and instruments are needed. The project is realized in close collaboration and co‐creation with different direct and indirect stakeholder groups from lead‐user companies, steering group members to public decision makers and members of the scientific community.
