Open ENLoCC at EU Commission in Brussels

On Monday, February 22, Open ENLoCC President Alberto Preti and Secretary Martin Brandt met with Desireé Oen, Vice-Head of Cabinet of EU Commissioner for Transport, Violeta Bulc, at her office in Brussels. Mrs. Oen is responsible for the topics dealing with logistics and as a reader of the “European Review of Regional Logistics” had suggested the meeting.
Alberto and Martin used the occasion to introduce the Open ENLoCC network to Mrs. Oen and to debate those work topics of Open ENLoCC members which may be relevant to the agenda of the commission. In general the meeting served to show the variety and richness of the members competences which can be put at the disposal of the EC in the means and time the EC deems appropriate.

Who we are

Open ENLoCC (European Network of Logistics Competence Centers) was established as a follow up of the “ENLoCC”-project and is an open network of regional logistics competence centres in the field of logistics, run by public authorities or similar bodies.

The main task of the network is the international exchange of experience and knowledge between its paticipants and the promotion of a higher level of cooperation with European institutions.

The members of Open ENLoCC work together on common projects with the aim to develop the regional economy by solving infrastructural, organisational and technological problems of logistics and transport. The dissemination of the results of the network activities and the best practices take place on a wide scale, involving all the key bodies at EU level.

You will find here the latest newsletter of Open ENLoCC:

European Review of Regional Logistics 3 / 2016

The founding of the network was financed in part through the Interreg IIIc programme of the European Union. Now the network is self-supporting through membership fees and activities.

Open ENLoCC invites other regional competence centres in the field of logistics to join.

Topics

Logistics Knowledge Base

The Open ENLoCC member institutions each hold a huge amount of regional logistics knowledge. Furthermore, typically each is a specialist in one or more topics, with a reputation across Europe. Therefore, the network as a whole probably is one of the most in-depth sources of logistics knowledge across Europe.

Logistics Training

The Open ENLoCC members offer logistics training and education or in any case have close ties to the relevant logistics training and education institutions in their area. In the past, several members have cooperated in the establishment of training courses under the “LOGtraining” label. More such cooperations are envisaged.

European Transport Corridors

The main European transport corridors are an important issue in European as well as in regional politics. For several such corridors, Open ENLoCC members cooperate on exchanging regional knowledge regarding these corridors, with an emphasis on freight transport. This has not only increased their knowledge, but also helped to establish formalized support projects for the improvement of these axes.
