France Water team

Governance and organization

Founded according to a federal model, the France Water Team association is administered and led by members of the three founding clusters, distributed fairly and according to their specialty.

France Water Team is governed by a Board of Directors who defines the general policy and operational strategy.

This governance structure has other prerogatives:

  • Create working groups and thematic committees such as the approval committee,
  • Appoint the representatives of France Water Team within the bodies in which the unit participates,
  • Establish the budget and approve the accounts.

The Board of Directors meets at least twice a year (in-person or electronically) and its members are appointed from among the Board of Directors of its founding members (AQUA-VALLEY, DREAM Eau et Milieux and HYDREOS).

The representative of the Strategic Committee of the Water Sector is proposed by the President of the said Committee to the vote of the General Assembly of the France Water Team, which expresses itself in a single vote on all the proposed candidatures.

Institutional relations

iberian_vir_20202018_lrg@2x

France Water Team is positioned for the pooling of the AQUA-VALLEY, DREAM Eau et Milieux and HYDREOS clusters in its relations with the ecosystem of the Water Sector.

Because of its federative structure in which the three founding clusters ensure relations with regional players, France Water Team is their link with programming structures and national and European funders of innovation, the international network and professional associations acting at the same geographical levels.
