ALICE Logistics Clusters Group

ALICE brings together logistics clusters from countries across Western Europe, creating a diverse and dynamic network to drive the logistics sector forward. ALICE aims to foster a European logistics innovation ecosystem operating at European, national and regional levels, ensuring that ALICE members are at the forefront of industry progress.

The ALICE Logistics Clusters Group represents different European countries, bringing together a wide range of smart specializations. This diversity enables us to address a broad spectrum of topics and challenges within the logistics sector, fostering a rich environment for innovation and growth.

Objectives of the Logistics Clusters Group

  • Creating an innovation ecosystem: By acting at different levels – European, national and regional – the Group builds an ecosystem that supports and nurtures innovation across the logistics landscape.
  • Knowledge sharing and cross-fertilisation: The Group facilitates the sharing of knowledge and best practices, with a particular focus on small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), to help them develop and innovate.
  • Research and innovation: The research initiatives create tangible value for businesses and society, driving progress and excellence in logistics.
  • Valorisation of research results: Using the BOOSTLOG tools, the Group ensures that research and innovation results are effectively used and applied.
  • European policy and stakeholder engagement: ALICE plays an important role in bridging the gap between European policies and stakeholders at all levels. Our efforts ensure that the latest policy developments reach the right audiences, promote compliance and encourage proactive engagement with new regulations and standards.

The ALICE Logistics Clusters Group is designed to foster collaboration, generate opportunities, and provide a robust framework for their realisation. By connecting logistics clusters with leading European innovation players, we create a platform for continuous improvement and breakthrough innovations.

Currently, the ALICE Logistics Clusters Group counts among its members:

The activities of the group are:

  • Identify and share best practices in knowledge valorisation out of R&I and how to transfer it to cluster members
  • Exchange on value added services to members and best practices in cluster management and engagement with members.
    • Identify and share best practices among members.
  • Identify and apply for funding programmes to facilitate clusters collaboration and implementation of cluster activities.
  • Exchange and increase visibility of projects across clusters & identification of synergies and potential collaboration.
    • Promote the project e-BOOST in the network of clusters.
  • Meet regularly online every 6 weeks and follow up on group activities and collaboration opportunities.
  • One or two annual face to face meetings to introduce the regional/country innovation ecosystem to the rest of the group.

What the group has delivered:

  • A benchmarking report with input from all clusters and identification of concrete best practices to share and discuss.
  • A proposal for funding within the programme: I3_Interregional Innovation Investments Instrument.
  • A technical visit to Estonia and Finland to explore the digital ecosystem and leading initiatives such as e-Estonia, Rail Baltica and visit leading companies in the region.

Join the ALICE Logistics Clusters Group and be part of a transformative journey in the logistics sector. Together we can shape the future of logistics through collaboration, innovation and strategic excellence.
