If the IWMSM is developed and tested, the business potential for the Dutch water sector as a whole is expected to be a growth in turnover of more than can three million euros
For the consortium partners the project offers better networks in Turkey and Kenya on the basis of a developed and tested IWMSM. That will generate business opportunities. The expected return is around 500,000 euros (return on investment after 3 years).
