FROM THE IDEA TO THE SALES, FRANCE WATER TEAM ACCOMPANIES THE PROJECTS OF AFFILIATED MEMBERS
France Water Team and its 3 founding clusters (AQUA-VALLEY, DREAM Eau & Milieux and HYDREOS) have had more than 220 projects approved since 2010, by constantly monitoring and accurately deciphering each call for projects. This represents a total R&D budget of €297M out of all the innovation funding windows.
With a thorough knowledge of the ecosystem in which companies in the water sector wish to develop and propel their ideas, France Water Team knows how to detect the true potential of a project.
France Water Team supports you in your projects’ labelling
A labelling process in 5 steps:
Labeling is a mission carried out by France Water Team on behalf of the public authorities. If a project is ready and its funding window is identified, the labeling is an important step that constitutes both a process of collegial improvement of the project and a selection process that guarantees a certain level of quality.
By comparing the relevance of a project to the vision of experts in the water sector, as well as by providing knowledge of the challenges of the industry and the priorities of the funders, labelling is a source of added value and positive differentiation.
6 GOOD REASONS TO HAVE A PROJECT LABELLED WITH FRANCE WATER TEAM
A support adapted to the needs of affiliated members
If products or services are still at the project stage, France Water Team offers support adapted to the needs of affiliate members who are developing them. Our support follows the key stages of the value chain, from the definition of a project to the valorization of its results.
“Bringing innovation to market”: This support is intended for companies that are wondering how to position an idea in relation to the market or what direction to give to an innovation. Through bibliographic studies, analysis of current projects or interviews with ecosystem players, this package will allow you to explore the potential of an innovation idea and facilitate the market entry of new products.
“Expose my idea”: France Water Team offers customized support to affiliated companies who have an idea but do not know how to exploit its full potential. Our action allows us to study the market potential (market research, monitoring), to help the idea mature (organization of brainstorming sessions, meeting with partners, etc.) and to find out about financing opportunities for an innovation.
“A helping hand”: For companies wishing to benefit from assistance in framing and a critical and active review of a project, France Water Team assists its affiliated members in the key phases of the project and its prospects.
“Set up my project”: For companies wishing to be supported from A to Z in setting up their project, France Water Team will co-construct the content of an application so that it is as close as possible to the requirements of the call for projects in question. The cluster will thus be able to provide its expertise on technical, legal, market, regulatory and budgetary aspects, etc.
“Assist in the management and coordination of the project”: For innovation project leaders who do not have the time to ensure the logistical management of the project, France Water Team takes care of the organization of follow-up meetings, the drafting of minutes, support in the implementation of consortium agreements, the preparation of documents to be returned to funders, etc.
“Assist in the closing and valorisation of the project”: An innovation born from a project does not always reach its market. Our support takes the form of communication (organization of an event, publication of articles, etc.), understanding of the market and regulations (legal and market studies) and assistance in meeting customers (research into innovation territories, etc.).
