Abstract

In ecosystems, participants co-evolve capabilities around new innovations by collaborating to support new offerings, satisfy customer needs and eventually discover innovations. The ecosystem functions increase the value of the output so that it exceeds the sum of the functions. The main objective of both winter maintenance ecosystems, Finnish and Japanese, is to provide safe and fluent road conditions. These ecosystems are compared to analyse and discuss the potential ways to develop current value chains. As roads and streets are publicly owned in most cases and mobility services regarded as public good, the role of the public sector mostly dictates the topology of the ecosystem and the type of actors in it. In Finland, the role of the road authorities is reduced due to restructuring, whereas in Japan it has so far remained stronger even though road authorities have been enhancing cooperation with local residents.
