Title: STREAM thematic network : standards, measurement, testing and research in environmental instrumentation and monitoring
Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
The overall objective of the STREAM network is: "to bring together environmental regulators, researchers, manufacturers and users of water quality and water quantity instrumentation to increase industrial competitiveness, improve standardisation and to promote better exploitation of new science and technology." The specific objectives for the STREAM network are: to identify the requirements of the end users and environmental regulators with respect to water-related instrumentation; to identify current areas of water related instrumentation expertise in all EU Member States; to identify why instrumentation manufacturers are not meeting the requirements of the environmental regulators; to determine where current research can be best exploited by manufacturers to till any gaps in the market; to ensure that environmental regulators, researchers and manufacturers are aware of future environmental priorities which may require instrumentation to be developed; to identify gaps in the instrument market for specific products or services; to prepare research proposals for submission to the EC in areas where new instrumentation is required.
