Dinalog International


Newsletter SoCool@EU now online available.

The project aims at creating an open European platform of excellence in the area of supply chain management and logistics in connection with hubs and gateways that will be open for participation by other regional clusters with a logistics and transportation profile after its establishment. 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) and its operational objectives are the following:

  • Fostering trans-national cooperation between research-driven clusters as well as mutual learning between regional actors.
  • Developing and implement joint action plans at a European level to increase the regional economic competitiveness.
  • Supporting the internationalization of the regional research-driven clusters.
  • Mentoring regions with a less developed research profile.
