29›06›2017 | The Outcomes of Rome's Water-management B2B Matchmaking 2017

On June 21st, 2017 in Rome, accompanying the visit of the Dutch King, His Royal Highness Willem Alexander and Her Royal Highness Queen Màxima, a commercial exchange between Dutch and Italian companies took place. With the purpose to intensify the collaboration of the Italian and Dutch companies in the important sector of watermanagement, Proaxxes was given the assignment, by the Dutch Ministry of Economical Development and the Dutch Embassy in Rome, to organize this matchmaking.  Proaxxes planned more than 100 B2B meetings, which lead to a very positive reaction from both parties, including insightful proposals and near future plans for collaboration between most of the companies.  

Watermanagement revolves around the activity of planning, developing, distributing and managing the optimum use of water resources. The Netherlands can be considered the best in field when it comes to watermanagement, as the country has invested a large amount of money in the research and development of water-related technologies as a result of its geographical features. Such technologies include water purification, wastewater treatment and flood protection. Being a peninsula situated in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, and with constant issues with drought, flooding and erosion, Italy is also greatly interested in innovative technologies for watermanagement. Developing strategies for a better naval traffic, efficient ports and improved quality of public and industrial water, the latter could hugely benefit from the knowledge shared by Holland, as viceversa.

The impact of this meeting on the economy of these two countries can be highly beneficial, as the previous B2B meeting demonstrated. The sharing of knowledge, experience and people can improve the flow of ideas and plans for more sophisticated and smarter technologies. A key event in the 2017 matchmaking was the signing of the contract for the collaboration of Regione Lombardia and Provincie of Zuid Holland. The idea of this collaboration began in the Netherlands-Italian dialogue & matchmaking  which took place in 2016. Following this successful contract, it is highly likely to expect great projects, such as future plans of development of water innovation and sustainability. Proaxxes is delighted with the results achieved through this exchange, and looks forward to the new projects that will be produced from this matchmaking.
