Second ALICE Logistics Innovation Award & Launch of Cloud Report on Urban Logistics

Monday, March 28th, 2022

Join us to hear stories from innovation practitioners – how to bring R&I project outcomes to the market and policy making  

In the past few decades, the logistics sector has experienced revolutionary shifts in technologies, business models, policies and legislation, with outcomes of public funded R&I projects being a key facilitator.

To acknowledge the achievements and inspire the R&I community of the logistics sector, ALICE launched the Innovation Award in April 2021. The second award is focused on successful implementation cases stemming from R& I projects in urban logistics.

Implement 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.

The ALICE Logistics Innovation Award evaluates all collected Implementation Cases. The evaluation is done by the selection based on three criteria: i) Operational, social and market impacts; ii) Influence on policy; 3) Scalability and growth potential.

The Award Selection Committee, consists of five experts:

  • Paola Cossu, CEO of FIT Consulting (chair)
  • Lola Ortiz Sánchez, Directora General de Planificación e Infraestructuras de Movilidad en Ayuntamiento de Madrid;
  • Massimiliano De Masi, innovation manager at Poste Italiane
