Sustainability of Water Resources within Aquatic Environments

DREAM certified and financed projects
Million Euros of project funding for DREAM certified R&D projects


DREAM’s mission is to support innovation. DREAM promotes the development of collaborative research and development (R&D) projects showing exceptional innovation within the environmental technology sector, and for water and aquatic environments.

DREAM aims to control the whole of the value chain:
from metrology to environmental engineering all the way through to alternative treatments for water and soils.

The cluster can therefore accompany the growth and development of its member companies, in particular through the marketing of new products, services or processes resulting from these research projects.

DREAM enables these companies to be placed at the forefront of their respective markets in France, Europe and abroad, and really is a driving force for growth and employment.

DREAM is based in Orleans, France, in the Centre-Val de Loire region, and also operates in the Pays de Loire and Brittany. Today, DREAM boasts a network of over 100 active members:

  • Economic actors (major groups, ETIs, SMEs, VSEs, Start-ups, professional bodies, associations, clusters, hubs, incubators etc.)
