Building upon this relationship, this workshop will provide a forum to connect and inform people, to depict new trends, and to take a different view on manufacturing processes. The event will include a series of short presentations by experts from academia and industry, and the dissemination of existing tools to promote the innovation process. This workshop is part of an event series organized by the consortium of InnoMatNet (innomatnet.eu), a project funded by the European Commission. With the idea of bringing specialists from materials laboratories and innovation actors in various industrial sectors together, InnoMatNet aims to establish inter-disciplinary connections towards a successful innovation society.

LogDynamics on the 29th German Logistics Congress

The 29th German Logistics Congress of Bundesvereingung Logistik (BVL) themed " Networks of Excellence” will be held from 17th to 19th of October in Berlin. A fundamental idea behind the German Logistics Congress was and is to disseminate logistics knowledge of experts to the general public. Since 1985 the congress is also accompanied by a trade exhibition.
 
Also this year the Bremen Research Cluster for Dynamics in Logistics will be represented within the trade exhibition demonstrating innovative solutions for the logistics sector. The highlight at this year’s stand is the model of a sea port terminal: autonomous cars in the transshipment process from the ramps of the vessel to the loading on the truck. During the whole process the vehicles will be traced with RFID-technology. Event messages will be sent to an IT-system and shared from there to all partners in the process chain. The demonstrator was developed within the RAN (RFID-based Automotive Network) project. The goal of the project is to create better transparency in the supply chain of the automotive industry.
 
All interested participants of the conference are warmly invited to visit us at the LogDynamics booth number 22 in the Pavillon (PV/22).
 
 


LOGMS – Second International Conference on Logistics and Maritime Systems

22nd – 24th August 2012, University of Bremen
 
The second International Conference on Logistics and Maritime Systems will take place from 22nd to 24th August 2012 in Bremen. The objective is to provide a forum for exchanging ideas on the latest developments in the field of logistics and maritime systems among participants from universities and related industries, and to seek opportunities for collaboration among the participants. Logistics activities worldwide have been rapidly increasing. As a result, global freight networks are emerging which combine maritime transport, inland waterways and onshore road and rail transportation systems.
 
The first conference of this series took place in Busan, Korea in 2010 integrating various predecessor conferences like the International Conference on Intelligent Logistics Systems (IILS), held in Busan, Korea (2005), Brisbane, Australia (2006), Kitakyushu, Japan (2007), Shanghai, China (2008), and Gold Coast, Australia (2009), and the Supply Chain Management (MLOG) conference held in Singapore (2008).
 
 

Intermodal Transport in Europe – Cooperation of Regional Clusters 2nd InTraRegio Consortium Meeting

The second InTraRegio consortium meeting took place in Bremen in August 21-24. The InTraRegio project is a coordination action funded within the “Regions of Knowledge” initiative of the EU 7th Framework Programme (FP7). The project started in January 2012 and will be implemented within 36 months. In conjunction to the Second International Conference on Logistics and Maritime Systems (LOGMS 2012) 35 participants of five clusters of the Canary Islands (ES), Bremen (DE), Marmara (TR), Calabria (IT) and Ruse (BG) met at the University of Bremen to discuss intermodality of freight transport systems, fostering of economic development and cluster capacity.
 
LogDynamics is member of the consortium; it takes responsibility for the scientific issues. The Bremen region is furthermore represented by WFB and BLG Logistics Group covering respectively governance and industry. Those partners work on in-depth analysis of regional and cross-regional research agendas together with 15 partners from Bulgaria, Italy, Spain and Turkey. The next consortium meeting will take place in Brussels in November 2012.
