European Activities

»A strong international network with excellent partners has the potential to boost innovation in logistics.«

Prof. Dr. Michael ten Hompel, Managing Director at Fraunhofer IML

International Collaboration for Sustainable Innovation

Logistics is by its definition an international industry and an integrator of all partners along the value chain. Not only logistics chains but research and policy networks have to go beyond national boundaries. As one of the most important player in logistics research, Fraunhofer IML takes on responsibility and is engaged in several well-established international committees and organizations. Some of our important networks and partners are introduced below. The collaboration varies from project collaboration - mostly funded by the European Commission -, joint initiatives like the European Technology Platform ALICE to bilateral strategic cooperation.

A strong partner of the institute regarding pan-European activities is the EffizienzCluster LogistikRuhr. EffizienzCluster LogistikRuhr is Germany’s only leading edge cluster in logistics, awarded by the Federal Government. Fraunhofer IML is a founding member and one of the key players within the EffizienzCluster.
