Aqua-Valley is a French Competitiveness Water Cluster, based in Montpellier and funded by the French government and Regional authorities. Aqua-Valley is promoting partnerships through collaborative projects between businesses and academics to support innovation and international development in the water sector. Other partners may be part of this network such as public authorities and firms providing business services. Since 2013, Aqua-Valley has been focusing on the development of an international partnership named France Water Team. Along with other international Water Clusters, Aqua-Valley is building a worldwide network with water actors to help French companies to improve their economic performances through partnerships in a dynamic and growing international environment. All these actions are meant to strengthen collaboration and encourage the sharing of experiences and good practices between all members of Aqua-Valley, and those of its international partners.
