For more than two decades, the EU has invested in research and innovation through various framework programs, 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 by, for example, creating new companies, implementing concepts on the market and by developing scientific regulation.

Boostlog, a three-year project, has received EU funding through Horizon 2020 to examine successful results and implementations from EU-funded projects and evaluate the effects. The project will address more than 160 projects funded by FP5, FP6, FP7 and Horizon 2020, to identify successful market implementations and rules. And also develop so-called "actionable reports" on various subject areas that are prioritized by stakeholders.

Boostlog can be summarized to support the power generation of R&D investments as a contribution to:

  • EU policies regarding climate neutrality, emissions, congestion, reduced noise pollution, free movement of goods, internal security, digital transformation of logistics chains and data sharing in logistics ecosystems.
  • Corporate sustainability and competitiveness to create value for society.


One of the main goals of BoostLog is to identify gaps and priorities for future funding programs that aim to increase the impact of future EU-funded projects to contribute to EU policy objectives, address societal challenges and increase EU competitiveness.
