There is still a lack of knowledge of Andalas University inventors on the importance of the Innovation Readiness Level (KATSINOV), which is a tool to measure the level of innovation. Therefore, it is necessary to hold socialization to the inventors and SMEs of Padang City to provide information about the importance of this KATSINOV. This socialization activity was carried out through a zoom meeting by inviting experts in this field. The method used is the presentation method, namely by providing socialization about KATSINOV to the inventors and tenants of Andalas University. In addition, the methods used were observation and direct interviews with Andalas University inventors to identify and measure KATSINOV's respective products. Socialization was provided by resource persons who understand KATSINOV. Katsinov is organized into six levels and seven key aspects covering technology, market, organization, partnership, risk, manufacturing and investment. This socialization activity resulted in the measurement of the level of product innovation readiness of Andalas University research. Furthermore, it was necessary to design a website-based application to facilitate the measurement of KATSINOV research products and West Sumatra MSME products.
