The European Technology Platform ALICE is set-up to develop a comprehensive strategy for research, innovation and market deployment of logistics and supply chain management innovation in Europe.

The platform will support and assist the implementation of the EU Programs for research: Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe.

ALICE is based on the recognition of the need for an overarching view on logistics and supply chain planning and control, in which shippers and logistics service providers closely collaborate to reach efficient logistics and supply chain operations.

Vision

Future logistics, from global to urban, will be founded on a global open system of systems enabling assets and resources in logistics networks to be interconnected facilitating their use to the maximum capacity and productivity while increasing agility and resilience of supply chains. We call this vision the Physical Internet (PI) and it will support the affordable transition of assets towards Zero emissions logistics.

ALICE Alliance for Logistics Innovation through Collaboration in Europe

ALICE recommendations to HORIZON 2020 calls within 2018-2020 program are based on the gaps and challenges identified in ALICE roadmaps not covered by running projects and initiatives. The identified topics were prioritized by ALICE Members and this is the basic document to discuss with the European Commission and the Member States represented in ALICE Mirror Group in the preparation of H2020 2018-2020 Work Programs.

ALICE is one of the key organizers of TRA2022
