ALICE Logistics Innovation Award: the winners will be announced on 28 April. Paola Cossu, CEO FIT Consulting, chair of the Award Selection Committee

In the past few decades, the logistics sector has experienced revolutionary shifts in technologies, business models, policies and legislation, with outcomes of public funded R&I projects being a key facilitator.

To acknowledge the achievements and inspire the R&I community of the logistics sector, ALICE launched the Innovation Award. The 2022 edition is focused on successful implementation cases stemming from R& I projects in urban logistics.

Implementation Cases are concrete examples in which causal links between public R&I funding and technology, organizational or process innovation in a specific logistics area can be established.

The ALICE Logistics Innovation Award evaluates all collected Implementation Cases. The evaluation is done by the selection based on three criteria: operational, social and market impacts; influence on policy; scalability and growth potential.

The Award Selection Committee, consists of five experts:

  • Paola Cossu, CEO of FIT Consulting (chair)
  • Lola Ortiz Sánchez, Directora General de Planificación e Infraestructuras de Movilidad en Ayuntamiento de Madrid;
  • Massimiliano De Masi, innovation manager at Poste Italiane
  • Hans Schurmans, Director Logistics operations and transformation at Proximus
  • Magnus Blinge, Research Manager at Scania/ Adj. Professor Linköping University

The award will be given in four categories:

  • City/Local authority;
  • Company;
  • Civil Society;
  • Other type of government

The winners will be announced during a webinar scheduled for 28th April 2022.
