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 communities.
- 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 SELIS.
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.
