Logistics Clouds Final Conference, Brussels, 27th of September

Friday, July 14th, 2017

We are pleased to invite you to the final conference on Logistics Cloud, which will take place on 27th of September 2017 at Auditorium Karel Van Miert, Madou Tower, Place Madou 1, 1210 Brussels

The European Commission and the ALICE Platform organized three workshops on Logistics Clouds, which had the objective of consolidating progress and draft future visions and plan for the Logistics sector, as well as to facilitate collaboration and cross-fertilization among different projects. The Logistics sector is considered an area where collaborative innovation is key to address challenges and opportunities, and the concept of the ‘Cloud’, as something able to change shape and dimension, aims at offering a new way of collaboration, free from predefined boundaries and constraints.

The objectives of the events were:

  • Bring a review of what has been achieved by industry stakeholders in the past and what are their future vision and plans.
  • Share and discuss achievements of collaborative innovation projects, challenges and opportunities addressed by new and ongoing projects.
  • Provide an overview of projects and initiatives in the selected area and build up strong links across them.
  • Support European Commission to make informed, knowledge-based policy decisions.

The Cloud events have been key opportunities for exchanging ideas and useful information between different actors, supporting the foresight of future needs of the sector.

The Final Conference aims at presenting the results of the thematic workshops, enhancing awareness of the progress made in the sector, and at fostering further exploitation and implementation of research results.

Participants will be encouraged to reach consensus on the take-ups of the past workshops and to define the contents of possible future Cloud meetings. To this end, the European Commission and the ALICE Platform invite all the interested stakeholders to this Logistics Cloud Final Conference that will take place on September 27th, from 10:00 to 16:30.

Registration is compulsory for participation, places are limited.

We look forward to welcoming you in Brussels.

Yours sincerely,

Organisation Team
