To coordinate these collaborative efforts, heterogeneity in temporal structures, resulting in temporal complexities, needs to be overcome. In this paper we draw on the time research literature and the theory of entrainment specifically, to analyze an in-depth longitudinal field study around the development of a smart city living lab. We found three forms of temporal work in which organizations were able to circumvent temporal complexities: 1) leveraging temporal concurrence, 2) creating suspension by temporary excluding actors, and 3) bringing the future to the present. While entrainment theory suggests that achieving synchrony between different rhythms, paces, or time orientations with the most dominant temporal structure is the key to effective temporal coordination, we find that in more complex multi-party settings like innovation ecosystems this is not always the case. Instead, we show that synchrony and asynchrony go hand in hand and discuss these insights in terms of the literature on coordination in ecosystems.",
