Confluence Water Technology Innovation Cluster

Confluence Water Technology Innovation Cluster

The idea to form a water technology cluster in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana stems from an initiative of the US Environmental Protection Agency EPA. This initiative recognizes the importance of harnessing regional expertise to encourage economic development, and environmental and human health protection. The success of technology clusters is based on committed strategic partnerships among key organizations from seven area sectors: universities, large corporations, emerging companies, federal government, state government, local government, and economic development associations. The region’s current resources and past successes in technology transfer highlight the capability to meet the demands required of today’s environmental technology development—initially in water technologies.
