Participating in CLOSER's results conference provides a good summary of what is happening within the transport sector. Through the results that will be presented during the day, our hope is that you can be inspired by others and, not least, get answers to the challenges you are facing within your organization. Because one thing is certain, there are many of us who work towards a more transport-efficient society and also many who want to share with us our own lessons and experiences about new proposed solutions! Welcome to come and talk and be inspired and exchange experiences with your friends in CLOSER.

Explore innovative solutions for efficient freight transport 

Over the years, the partnership with CLOSER has worked intensively to develop solutions that make the freight transport system more efficient. These solutions, which include everything from technological innovations to behavioral changes and business models, will be presented and discussed during the conference. Discover how these solutions can be a game-changer for you and your organization to shape the efficient freight transport solutions of the future. 

  

Dialogue, cooperation and future challenges 

CLOSER emphasizes the importance of cooperation and dialogue in designing the freight transport of the future. The conference creates a platform where experts and decision-makers meet to discuss challenges and opportunities. You as a participant will not only be an audience but also actively participate in the dialogue about how we can together accelerate the transition to an efficient and sustainable freight transport system. 

  

Be part of streamlining transport solutions & understand how you can innovate and streamline 

CLOSER's results conference is also an excellent opportunity to understand how you can implement existing innovation results so that your organization contributes to more efficient freight transport solutions. Meet the driving forces behind CLOSER and get insights directly from us about how we have succeeded together with our partners. Our results contribute to the systems perspective and focus on everything from behavior change and business models to policy and technology. At the conference, you can also gain an understanding of how you can meet challenges and drive innovation with CLOSER as an innovation platform.
