Assuming the most important innovations of the future will not be generated by new technologies but by the way in which work is organised and collaborated, network organisations become more and more important. However, the current literature reveals a gap in research on the practical design of networks. This study presents a theory that systematically describes the practical configuration possibilities for network organisations in the field of R&D. The developed theory is empirically examined by a quantitative survey at the network organisation ARENA2036, an R&D campus for the future production. The results indicate 6 factors to unlock the collaborative potential in Open Innovation Ecosystems which, from the participant's point of view, considerably promote shared innovation between different partners in network organisations.
