Visualizing Innovation Ecosystems Workshop, Sept. 28, Finland

Following the successful Innovation Ecosystems Summit this July at Stanford University, IEN team will be participating a MindTrek‘s Partner Session in Finland. Together with VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and Hypermedia Laboratory at Tampere University of Technology, IEN team will host the Visualizing Innovation Ecosystems workshop.

In the workshop, we are going to describe the concept of innovation ecosystem, define questions that are yet to be answered, present visualization-driven methods of social media analysis, and discuss how these methods may be applied in the context of innovation ecosystem research. Further, we give a review of some of the openly available and easy-to-use tools for visual network analysis such as NodeXL and Gephi as well as other visualisation tools that can be used to complement network analysis.
