NWO grants for sustainable logistics

08 September 2014

How can we organize the maintenance of offshore wind farms in a sustainable and efficient way? How can we design supply chains that are both flexible and efficient enough to deal with unpredictable circumstances? How can we make logistics issues surrounding the transport of fresh food products sustainable? Three researchers from the Faculty of Economics and Business of the University of Groningen have been awarded grants totalling over EUR 2 million to answer these questions. Their research will contribute to the aims of the national Logistics Top Sector.

Within the Logistics Top Sector, NWO has a Sustainable Logistics research programme, which concentrates on making the Dutch logistics sector sustainable. This programme has now made a total of EUR 5 million available, about 40% of which has been awarded to Groningen researchers. These grants give an important impulse to the University's strategic research areas of logistics, sustainability and energy.
