Collaborative network formation is necessary for the development of Product Service innovations used to address societal challenges. Initiation of collaborative networks requires the recognition and understanding of the interdependence necessary for sharing/creating knowledge, which in turn requires a high sense of trust. In an effectively executed case study, boundary objects were designed to facilitate a context in which actors from different organizations could experience mutual trust and understanding, and learn from each other. Through this experience participants were able to discern the value of collaboration, unite with common visions, and form a collaborative network.
