For more than two decades EU has invested in research and innovation (R&I) through various Framework Programmes, e.g. FP5 (1998-2002), FP6 (2002-2006), FP7 (2007-2013), and the ongoing HORIZON 2020 (2014 – 2020). This has contributed to the development of the logistics sector through the creation of new companies, implementation of concepts in practice and through science based regulation.
What will CLOSER do?
CLOSER will, as a participating partner, with the support of our partnership contribute to mapping and evaluating the various projects. This based on different freight transport and logistics domains such as urban logistics, multimodal transport and sharing of freight and logistics data and more. To ultimately identify high-priority and potential knowledge gaps that require increased prioritization of future R&I efforts.
