ABSTRACT In order to address the lack of knowledge about readiness for implementing user-driven innovation at a network level, this paper develops a conceptual framework for assessment, and tests this in the context of the building material industry in Denmark. The results illustrate significant differences in user-driven innovation readiness between the network partners, and provide valuable knowledge on which areas to target in order to create a balanced network approach to the joint innovation activities. Keywords: user-driven innovation, supply chain, implementation readiness, value network, collaboration
