'The project aims to create an open European platform of excellence in the area of supply chain management and logistics in connection with hubs and gateways. Its purpose is to enable research-driven regional clusters throughout Europe to collaborate and exchange experiences for increasing sustainability and competitiveness of logistical services and (intermodal) transport operations. The consortium consists of five clusters that represent essential areas of logistics (deep-sea hubs, airports, land-hubs and short-sea hubs). In the project the needs of the stakeholders will be analysed, a strategy for international cooperation will be elaborated, and adequate plans for joint action will be initiated and implemented. In addition, training activities will be carried out. The project will pursue its objectives especially through extensive dissemination and exploitation activities.'
Optimising logistics through transnational cooperation
Improved efficiency and sustainability of European supply chains, logistics, and intermodal transport have the potential to greatly benefit businesses and regional economic competitiveness. Such goals are to be achieved through transnational cooperation and an increased pool of European research and innovation from which to draw knowledge and experience.
The project 'Sustainable organisation between clusters of optimised logistics @ Europe' (http://www.socool-logistics.eu (SOCOOL@EU)) aims to enable research-driven regional clusters throughout Europe. The goal is to collaborate, further R & D, and implement joint projects in an effort to achieve logistics optimisation. The project is comprised of six groups, each contributing to the project's overall goals.
Strong project management focused on analysis of the involved logistics and transport clusters. Online questionnaires and desk research were some of the tools used for analysis. The results have been presented in a report offering important insights into this area of investigation.
Another part of the project focused on defining the joint action plan, with three deliverables having already been produced. The consortium has defined 6 fields of joint action and 11 project proposals in these fields.
Continued work on implementation of the joint action plan has seen the creation of an executive master programme. This is to be executed in cooperation with certain universities in order to exchange knowledge between regions and potential partners. Other project work involves mentoring less-developed regions, finalising two deliverables, and the development of a Mentoring Action Plan.
Successful continuation of the project's dissemination strategy most recently included establishing a regional user group and organising eight cluster workshops. The consortium partners also attended around 16 external national and international events to promote the project and its results.
