Decisions to fund, finance, or purchase innovative concepts and applications heavily depend on assessments of their maturity. This project develops a model for evaluating the readiness level of innovations for climate-neutral cities that can be applied to heterogeneous innovations and takes the specific challenges of the urban context into account. To ensure high levels of applicability and user friendliness, the development process includes both decision-makers from innovation policy and potential users.
