Midterm Conference NWO Logistics Knowledge Community

NWO and TKI Dinalog organise a conference for all researchers and other experts from governance, industry and NGO’s currently involved in NWO and TKI Dinalog research projects on logistics.

The aim of the conference is to bring together the community of researchers and partners in the project consortia, as well as experts from the Topsector Logistiek, TKI Dinalog, program committee members, and some other relevant stakeholders.

In one day you will be able to:

  • inform yourself on the progress of the projects of the programmes Vitale LogistiekDuurzame LogistiekISCOMAccelerator, Eranet Transport and TKI Toeslag;
  • get insight in the intended end results of the projects;
  • discover common ground and opportunities for synergy and cooperation;
  • identify possible topics that are not covered yet and new knowledge questions for future research.

For researchers the conference will be the perfect opportunity to present their project, discuss the results so far with research collegues in other projects and experts from the field and to get to know the other members of the logistic research community in the Netherlands.

We expect all projects of the (around) 50 projects to be amply represented.
Language will be English.
