Whether you are a user office manager who coordinates the remote access of scientists, a professional working at a logistics company, a user of different RIs, an RI service provider, or staff responsible for the handling of deliveries at a research infrastructure, RI.Logistica is for you.

The conference offers a unique opportunity to engage with and learn from supply chain experts who will share proven solutions that have allowed their businesses to streamline planning processes, harness data management software to automatise and track deliveries, and optimise cross-border transportation of goods that require customs clearance.

The leading theme and primary goal of RI.Logistica is to help science get in place.

The event aims to facilitate the transfer of know-how from the logistics industry to the RI landscape of Europe and establish a new forum for best practice exchange. By doing so, RI.Logistica will support research infrastructures in developing in-house expertise that will allow them to address any logistical challenge by building on well-established processes deployed and tested by the industrial world. In research, these challenges may vary from the shipment of tiny samples invisible to the naked eye, to transportation of vaccines under strict temperature conditions, and moving of giant scientific equipment across continents.

Register for RI.Logistica today and be part of the unparalleled international forum that will impact how research infrastructures deal with logistics in the future.
