We open the call to look for concrete examples in which R&I projects’ results have been further developed and have been deployed as commercial solutions, have generated a new market or have contributed to new policies or regulations. The first call focuses on coordination & collaboration cases. We want to promote implementation cases in order to inspire others to follow successful examples, and to understand enabling factors to lead such success.
We will form a selection committee led by Caroline Cipres, Research Director of ZLC, to look into all collected cases and present the first ALICE Logistics Innovation Award to recognise the achievement in a dedicated event in September 2021.
Implementation Cases are concrete examples in which causal links between public R&I funding and technology, organizational or process innovation in a specific logistics area can be established. Implement Cases are that research results have been further developed and have been deployed as commercial solutions, have generated a new market or have contributed to new policies and will stablish causal links between research funding and impact.
Coordination and collaboration refer respectively to vertical and horizontal synergies along and across different supply chains. In this context, Supply Network Coordination deals with the synchronization and dynamic update of logistics and transport plans, across modes and actors. Supply Network Collaboration deals with maximising resources utilization by matching demand from multiple shippers with available transport and logistics services from different modes and service providers. Both Coordination and Collaboration can produce significant gains in terms of both efficiency and sustainability, leading the transition from individually managed supply chains to open supply networks.
