The EU Techbridge project matches innovative European SMEs with North American based end-users/corporate buyers which are looking for innovative water and energy solutions. The Water Alliance is one of the five partners in this project and aims to connect the Dutch watertechnology sector to the North American market.


By setting up an intensive matchmaking programme (virtual and physical), concrete challenges from North American corporate buyers will be matched with innovative solutions from European SMEs. One of the main goals of the project is to organise 5 matchmaking missions from Europe to Canada and the United States. Before the start of each mission, the project partners will specify the technology needs with the North American challenge owners. Aſter that, European SMEs will be invited to
pitch their solutions. The challenge owner decides with which SMEs they want to proceed. The first mission is scheduled for the beginning of 2021.
