LEAD project has just launched the call for its Transferability Platform (TP), that will be joined by six external cities/ local authorities.
LEAD is a project that will create Digital Twins of urban logistics networks in six TEN-T urban nodes to support experimentation and decision making with on-demand logistics operations in a public-private urban setting. It is considered SENATOR’s sister project, together with ULaaDS, as the three of them are research projects that run under CIVITAS 2020 Initiative and are funded under the same Horizon 2020 call. They are in constant collaboration to better inform about their research development and to build a vision of future on-demand urban logistics.
LEAD has opened the application to its Transferability Platform (TP), that will select six external cities or local authorities. The selected ones to join the TP will benefit from a tailored Transferability plan, supporting their transfer activities, including capacity-building, training, technical visits, interactive workshops, and customised feedback.
A dedicated budget has been allocated to help partly cover the costs of the engagement of the participants in the project. This may be used to fund travel expenses or personnel time spent on project engagement, including internal meetings and discussions.
Transferability activities consist of:
- Interviews and surveys for the identification and analysis of the requirements and necessities of cities, and your expectations towards the LEAD solutions.
- Capacity building activities: webinars, e-training and bilateral meetings/discussions with the partners responsible for the LEAD LL and specific solutions of their interest.
- Direct access to the project’s key reports and events, while your will receive tailor-made and hands-on advice on the knowledge and tools developed in LEAD.
How to apply:
In order to become one of the 6 external cities joining the LEAD Transferability programme, you need to fill in a short questionnaire, which will help LEAD to better define your urban logistics profile and assess the complementarity and relevance to the 6 LEAD Living Labs.
Deadline: 11th of December 2020
Selected cities will be informed in early January.
