Project Info

The project is financed through the Regions of Knowledge-Programme under FP7 (Capacities) and coordinated by Udo Tarmann, Entwicklungsagentur Kärnten, Austria.  

Today, more than ever, sustainable Transport & Logistics are genuinely characterised by the need for interaction and qualified communication. Logistics is a key factor for the greening of transport.Nevertheless, the role of logistics is often underestimated and needs public awareness to support an overall development towards more sustainability. 

The LOG4GREEN cooperation aims at awareness raising and strengthening the competitiveness  in Europe’s Logistics sector. To this end Logistics clusters of six regions - Carinthia (Austria), Ruhr (Germany), Wallonia (Belgium), Normandy (France), Istanbul (Turkey), Odessa (Ukraine) - have joined forces to elaborate a Joint Action Plan (JAP) which is built on regional analyses and strategies.

The LOG4GREEN partnership builds upon existing bilateral cooperation between the partner regions, promotes synergies but also identifies complementarities in both, research and economic fields. The consortium further improves existing links between the actors involved and stakeholders in clearly defined mentoring and benchmarking regions.
