WP 4 - Creating the link with the market

ProDes facilitates collaboration between technology providers and key actors in the local markets. Such local actors may be municipalities, utilities or small enterprises supplying water treatment or renewable energy equipment and services.

The outcomes will benefit all involved parties: the municipalities or local utilities will gain access to the new technology enabling them to solve their water supply problems. The local entrepreneurs will generate new business and the technology providers will find markets for their products. The local companies can develop different type of partnerships with the technology providers promoting the products in the regions they are active, offering installation, operation and maintenance services. A dedicated networking event will be organised in each involved country (Greece, Italy, Spain and Portugal) to facilitate contacts between local enterprises and international technology providers. When these events are organised they will be announced in the project events section of this website.
