Early prototype

A TRL is a measure to indicate the matureness of a developing technology. When an innovative idea is discovered it is often not directly suitable for application. Usually such novel idea is subjected to further experimentation, testing and prototyping before it can be implemented. The image below shows how to read TRL’s to categorise the innovative ideas.

Evaluating flexibility of available options for flood defense infrastructure (extendable to other fields ) to address and accommodate uncertainties.


The computational method will be used to analyse existing flood defense strategies.


Within the next two years, the core algorithms will be available for scientific use.
