The signing took place in the booth of the French Water Team during the international water exhibition Hydro Gaïa.

Like the Water Alliance in the Netherlands, the French Water Team which is very active boosting the activities of the French water cluster Pôle Eau, is specifically active for water technology companies in the southern regions of France.

Cross-border cooperation
The purpose of the Letter of Intent is to further investigate and strengthen cooperation between the Dutch and French water clusters, in the fields of business, knowledge development and education.

Both organisations hope that a closer cooperation can also lead to easier access to joint European projects and further strengthen cross-border cooperation.

The letter of intent was signed, on behalf of Pôle Eau, by chairman Sylvain Boucher (left on top photo) and on behalf of Water Alliance by director Hein Molenkamp (right).
