    The authors wish to thank the Media Lab at the Department of Media and Communications and the Information Systems and Innovation Group, both at the London School of Economics for their support in the research work completed by the authors within the framework of the Digital Business Ecosystem (DBE) Project in FP-6 EU, project task WP32-B11. The authors are particularly grateful to Paolo Dini, Gordon Gow and Robin Mansell for their continuous support and guidance over the course of the research. Since the DBE project completion, a follow-up project funded by the EU, denominated ‘OPAALS (Open Philosophies and Autopoietic digitaL ecosystemS) Network of Excellence’ has been able to continue the research path established by the DBE and extend the findings at the core of its research work outside the boundaries of Europe to India, Brazil and China. Trust type Z refers to the trust relationships between DBE participants themselves. This type of trust is supported by confidence in the ability of norms and laws to govern the interactions resulting in part from the self-organisation and evolution of the DBE environment.
