Cross-industry innovation ecosystems: driving convergence towards Industry 4.0

The presentation will focus on the Autonomous Shipping Project currently undertaken in Finland in order to answer the following questions: How does it turn conventional wisdom in many companies from different industries upside down? How does it redefine value co-creation concepts and boundary spanning and how does it potentially create a multitude of novel business concept innovations?
