Funding scheme:CSA-CA - Coordination (or networking) actions
LOG4GREEN's objective is to boost the regional competitiveness and growth in six European regions: Carinthia (AT), Ruhr (GE), Wallonia (BE), Normandy (FR), Istanbul (TR), Odessa (UA). Logistics clusters of these regions have joined forces to elaborate and to start the implementation of a Joint Action Plan.
LOG4GREEN considers the characteristics of Sustainable Transport Logistics such as: (i) logistics is genuinely defined by a need for interaction and qualified communication, (ii) logistics is a key factor for the greening of transport, (iii) the role of logistics is underestimated and needs public awareness to support an overall development towards more sustainability.
4 general objectives within the RTD-based logistics sector have been defined and transformed into a 36 months workplan: (1) to strengthen integrative research in the overall field of logistic systems by developing transregional interdisciplinary RTD-networks involving stakeholder groups along the value-added chain, (2) to foster interregional knowledge exchange between the triple helix stakeholders making use of the challenges/best practices for green transport in order to open up new fields for research activities, (3) to optimise education and training of (young) experts to meet the challenges of the highly complex multidisciplinary requirements of the future logistics innovation systems, (4) to enhance the competitive performance of the European logistics clusters with regard to the development of successful regional RTD- and knowledge transfer structures in global context.
The partnership builds upon existing bilateral cooperation between partner regions, promotes synergies but also identifies complementarities in both research and economic fields. The consortium further improves existing links between the actors involved and stakeholders in clearly defined mentoring regions. The project thus supports the development (or foundation) and internationalisation of regional research-driven cluster.
