In this study, we present a solution for describing and visualizing networks of innovation relationships in the context of a single nation, in this case Finland. We resolve the limitations of separate datasets by building multiscopic views into networks of innovation relationships, using separate datasets as well as an aggregated dataset that federates them. We proceed to support the interpretation of these visualizations explaining context with network metrics as well as other descriptions. Our approach allows examining the relationships needed for value co-creation at various levels of the ecosystem as well as between those levels, providing novel possibilities for network orchestration and innovation management. Our practical suggestions include active communication and data sharing using a wide variety of media, and utilizing network views for targeted actions as well as for creating shared understanding and vision.
