Shared European Logistics Intelligent Information Space
The SELIS project aims to contribute to the development of a Shared European Logistics Intelligent Information Space. The
SELIS project consists of 37 European partners from 13 countries. Its
main objective is to develop a platform for pan-European logistics
applications and to create a communication and navigation platform for
the European logistic communities.
SELIS aims to deliver a ‘platform for pan-European logistics applications’ by:
- Embracing a wide spectrum of logistics perspectives and creating a unifying operational and strategic business innovation agenda for pan European Green Logistics.
- Establishing an exceptionally strong consortium of
logistics stakeholders and ICT providers, that can leverage EU IP from
over 40 projects so as to create proof of concept Common Communication
and navigation platforms for pan-European logistics applications
deployed in 8 living labs representing the principal logistics
- Establishing a research and innovation environment using the living labs to
provide data than can be used for discovery of new insights that will
enable continuous value creation supporting the large scale adoption of
The Shared European Logistics Intelligent Information
Space is a network of logistic communities’ specific shared intelligent
information spaces termed SELIS Community Nodes. SELIS Community Nodes
are constructed by individual logistics communities to facilitate the
next generation of collaborative, responsive and agile green
transportation chains. The fundamental principle is that the SELIS
Community Node provides a ‘lightweight ICT structure’ to enable
information sharing for collaborative sustainable logistics for all at
strategic and operational levels.
The SELIS Project receives funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020
Programme. Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU research and innovation
programme ever with almost €80 billion of funding available over seven
years, from 2014 to 2020. In addition to the private investment that
this money will attract, it promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and
world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market.
