Selection criteria

The importance of the site in the context of the Alsace and Lorraine areas is the basic criterion for selecting sites. Applications will also be judged in terms of :

  • the number and diversity of players involved (small and medium-sized businesses, researchers, etc.),
  • the extent to which the technical solutions applied are innovative or develop the structures of the industry,
  • whether the application for membership of the Water Route is submitted by an applicant who is a member of HYDREOS,
  • the motivation of the site’s manager and the companies that have been involved, together with the technical feasibility of visits to the site in terms of personal safety and safety of the installation with respect to the site’s suitability to receive persons external to it.

A panel will assess and select applications on the basis of the forms submitted.
