European Logistics Innovation Day: first in-person event of BOOSTLOG

Thursday, June 2nd, 2022

For all stakeholders interested in logistics, particularly those who work on sustainability and innovation

BOOSTLOG vision is transforming European freight transport and logistics R&I ecosystem to perform optimally boosting impact generation out of R&I investment contributing to EU policy objectives towards climate neutrality, pollution, congestion and noise reduction, free movement of goods, internal security, digital transformation of logistics chains and data sharing logistics ecosystems and supports companies sustainability and competitiveness generating value for society.

After 1.5 year operation, the project has delivered three ‘Cloud’ reports covering key topics in the logistics sector: Coordination & Collaboration, Urban Logistics and Logistics Nodes. The project also published reports on gap analysis, priorities identified, valorisation strategies etc. At this public event, the BOOSTLOG consortium will present the project results so far and engage with logistics stakeholders to have their say on next steps.

The event is organised in conjunction with ALICE General Assembly which will be held on 6th of July.

Discussion Tables

What are the discussion tables? After so long in virtual meetings, the best way to use our time is creating specific opportunities to exchange informally around key topics for freight transport, logistics and supply chain innovation. You will meet your peers in tables of 8-10 people for around 30-40 minutes so you can exchange your views, ideas, and interest with other individuals. We expect you can bring forward and share your knowledge on the different subjects to build the next steps within BOOSTLOG and ALICE supporting the whole logistics and supply chain community.

These are the discussion tables titles and here more details on the discussion tables

Here you can see the schedule for the different discussion tables
