The NOVELOG project recently joined the ALICE Liaison Program with Research & Innovation Projects.
ALICE is the European Technology Platform on Logistics set-up to develop a comprehensive strategy for research, innovation and market deployment of logistics and supply chain management innovation in Europe. The platform support, assist and advise the European Commission into the implementation of the EU Program for research: Horizon 2020, in the area of Logistics. ALICE was officially recognized as a European Technology Platform by the European Commission in July 2013.
ALICE is following up relevant research and innovation projects in the field in order to assess the implementation of ALICE Roadmaps, identify new gaps and prepare recommendation to the European Commission future calls. Moreover, ALICE is willing to support dissemination of relevant projects and outcomes to logistics industry in order to increase impact.
In order to support the process, ALICE established the Liaison Program with Research and Innovation Projects in July 2015. ALICE will liaise with running projects and provide support for their dissemination.
On 13 October 2016, the European Commission and ALICE organize a dedicated info-day and brokerage event addressing relevant topics for logistics included in different 2017 calls (beyond transport) to allow logistics stakeholders to get a complete overview of open opportunities in one day.
The objective of the event is to get first hand briefings on the topics by the European Commission officers so to get the right information to properly address the calls. At the same time ALICE will highlight how proposals in reply to the calls can contribute to the implementation of ALICE roadmaps.
