The BOOSTLOG project: Boosting the impact of freight transport and logistics EU funded research

About the project:

Project name: BOOSTing impact generation from research and innovation on integrated freight transport and LOGistics system (BOOSTLOG)

Starting date: 1 January 2021

Duration: 36 months

Total funding: 1 M€

Project type: Coordination and Support Action (CSA)

Programme: Horizon 2020

Topic: MG-2-13-2020 – Coordination and support for an integrated freight transport and logistics system

Objectives:

BOOSTLOG Vision is transforming European freight transport and logistics R&I ecosystem to perform optimally boosting impact generation out of R&I investment contributing to EU policy objectives towards climate neutrality, pollution, congestion and noise reduction, free movement of goods, internal security, digital transformation of logistics chains and data sharing logistics ecosystems and supports companies sustainability and competitiveness generating value for society. 

Activities:

In order to do so, BOOSTLOG focusses on 4 main areas of action: 

1. Increase visibility and support valorisation of R&I project Results, Outcomes and Implementation Cases in the freight transport and logistics field:

  • Map and asses around 160 EU-funded R&D since FP5 in different freight transport and logistics domains, identifies and include main results, outcomes and implementation cases from projects in ALICE Knowledge Platform, 
  • Develops comprehensive and industry actionable reports (logistics cloud reports) starting with: a) logistics coordination & collaboration b) urban logistics, c) logistics nodes, d) freight and logistics data sharing e) multimodal freight, corridors & transport networks f) modularization and transhipment to share progress made and highlight the impact achieved through R&I projects; 

2. Overcome barriers for R&D deployment, identify and define valorization strategies and guidelines to speed up the technological and organisational innovation uptake, including the creation of the Innovation Marketplace within ALICE knowledge platform, examine which areas of research have achieved higher impact and issue recommendations to increase impact of R&I public funding, 

3. Identify and define high potential & priority R&I gaps to make efficient uses of R&I investments and provides recommendations to funding organizations (e.g. European Commission) and 

4. Boost impact of the project outputs towards end users of the freight transport and logistics system, establishing collaboration frameworks for the exchange of best practices in freight transport and logistics R&I at regional, national, European level, engaging with relevant stakeholders in the innovation process.
