DREAM Water & Environment

The DREAM Water & Environment competitiveness cluster promotes the sustainable, shared management of water resources, in conjunction with the associated environments and ecosystems. The challenges of water resource management are common to many fields and sectors of activity (cities, industry, agriculture and natural environments). DREAM is based in Orléans in the Centre-Val de Loire region, but also operates in the Pays de Loire and Bretagne regions.

With its network of business, research and training players, the DREAM ecosystem has the assets and talent to rise to the challenges of water. The cluster stimulates and supports innovation by encouraging the emergence of innovative projects. It supports the development and growth of its member companies by bringing to market new products, services or processes resulting from these research projects. The cluster’s skills and expertise range from metrology and environmental engineering to alternative water and soil treatment.


Facilitating an innovation ecosystem to meet water-related challenges:

  • Networking
  • Project engineering (emergence, set-up, support, promotion)
  • Communication

Implications and links with Sycomore

DREAM contributes to Sycomore’s governance and partnership dynamics. The DREAM cluster will be involved in bringing the project and its progress to the attention of its network through animation and communication activities.
