Institutional approaches support a significant perspective shift in the field of studies of innovation. From a firm-centered tradition discussing innovative internal capabilities, the innovation literature comes to recognize an open process, primarily based on interorganizational relationships. Under this perspective shift, the innovation ecosystem emerges as a concept capable of relating innovative performance to the set of organizational actors and their interactions in a context of cultural, cognitive,andnormative elements. Within the limits of the innovation ecosystem, collaboration, as a free, recurring,andproductive interaction, gains prominence as the central dynamic for technological development. However, collaborative behavior requires the sharing of structures, norms,andculture, and its development in the environment of innovation ecosystems still instigates further analysis. The problem that this research sought to answer, therefore, considersthe dynamics of fostering collaboration in innovation ecosystems. The articulation between institutional work –perspective atthe agency of the individual in the institutionalization process –and institutional logics –perspective atthe dimensions that support the institution –was used as the theoretical lens of this dissertation. In order to achieve the research objectives, a multiple case study was carriedout covering the innovation ecosystems of Sophia Antipolis, in France,and Tecnosinos, in Brazil. As a result, the research brings a theoretical-conceptual framework and sixpropositions that support the thesis that relational assets ease the implementation of institutional work practices that foster collaboration as an institutionalized organizational behavior in innovation ecosystems.The theoretical contributions of this dissertationinform the literature on the propensity of reaching results from the inclusion of the relational level of analysis as a bridge capable of integrating institutional work and institutional logics. This dissertationbrings managerial contributions insofar as it informs public managers, entrepreneurs,andresearchers inserted in innovation ecosystems on ways to stimulate and take advantage of collaborative initiatives. Finally, this dissertation sets suggestions for future studies.

Key-words:Innovation Ecosystems; Collaboration; Institutional Work; Institutional Logics; Relational Assets; Sophia Antipolis; Tecnosinos.
