Approvals committee

Approval by HYDREOS facilitates access to financing from bodies such as the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (National Research Agency) or BPI France.

An Approvals Committee, chaired by Fabrice Nauleau (Director of Research at SAUR), assesses the appropriateness of projects submitted.

The Approvals Committee comprises eight permanent members. They come from both the private sector and public research bodies and represent the cluster’s various fields of activity.

HYDREOS’ General Manager also sits on this committee and, depending on the agenda, experts are invited to take part in its deliberations.
