DREAM currently incorporates some eighty players in the water sector, focusing on sustainability of water resources and of the milieus with which they are associated.
The cluster’s objective is to help increase the region’s drawing power through creation of new resources and furtherance of economic development by :
- Bringing about greater synergy between economic players and researchers focusing on water
- Promotion of collaborative projects between partners from the industrial world and the research world
- Encouraging “Research to Industry” technology transfers, so speeding up innovation within companies.
