10.05.2012 - Logistics for LIFE final event results
The Final Event of L4Life was held at the Transport Research Arena (TRA) 2012 Conference in Athens from the 23rd to the 25th of April, which consisted of a special session and a booth at the EC-stand. The TRA conference is one of the few big conferences in this sector with more than 2000 participants in 2012 and was suitable to held the final event. The Conference was contributed to innovation in sustainable mobility for Europe, by bringing together all the stakeholders of the transport system and dealt extensively with all surface transport modes: road, rail and waterborne and underlined interlinks between them.
The special session was held on Tuesday 24th of April from 18:15 to 19:30 and was called "ICT for sustainable logistics: best practices and roadmap to 2020".
The collaborative spirit that characterized the Logistics for LIFE Coordination Action was enforced by the contributed presentation of Georgia Ayfantopoulou (CERTH/ HIT), coordinator of the Smart CM project. Due to the fact that there was a big welcome party organized by the commission the consortium was able only to attract three external participants at its session.
The Logistics for LIFE participation to the conference extended over the special session with a booth at the European Commission stand and presentations held at the main area by several project partners to show results and challenges that the future research and development on Information and Communication Technologies for transport research must face to ensure the sustainability and the competitiveness of the sector in Europe. A touchscreen was shown at the booth with the Intelligent Cargo game and a multiple choice test about the partner projects and was run by our qualified project partners from different companies and areas.
