Since its kick-off back at the beginning of June, LEAD partners have had their hands full.
The project hit the ground running, with an article on the Thinking Cities magazine to shed some light both on the project, but on the novel concept of Digital Twins and their potential for zero-emission demand-responsive urban logistics.
LEAD launched a survey to gather views on the key challenges, trends and influencing factors characterising urban freight transport (UFT), involving key experts and practitioners. The results will be made available in a deliverable to be published in early 2021.
On the 10th of November, LEAD organised its first event: the webinar “Like two peas in a pod: Digital Twins for urban planning”, in association with Polis Network’s Mobilising Mobility series.
On that same day, LEAD launched the call for its Transferability Platform, which will be formed by Six external local authorities will join our Transferability Platform and benefit from a tailored transferability programme building upon LEAD’s results. This includes capacity-building, training, technical visits, interactive workshops, and customised feedback. Applications are open until the 11th of December.
The first very fruitful steps have been made in creating synergies with SENATOR and UlaaDS, two additional projects funded under the Horizon 2020 call LC-MG-1-10- 2019. These aim to test and validate different logistics solutions that deal with requirements of the ‘on-demand economy’ and for shared-connected and low-emission logistics operations and will exploit synergies to better inform their research development.
