RI.Logistica conference – Getting Science in Place!

19 May 2021 - 20 May 2021

key visual RI.Logistica conferenceThe RI.Logistica conference is an online event designed for research infrastructures (RIs), their users and collaborators, companies in the supply chain management, and governmental authorities to discuss all aspects of logistics critical for research facilities and laboratories. It will take place on 19-20 May 2021.

Whether you are a user office manager who coordinates the remote access of scientists, a professional working at a logistics company, a user of different RIs, an RI service provider, or staff responsible for the handling of deliveries at a research infrastructure, RI.Logistica is for you. You can check the programme and register on the event website here.

The conference offers a unique opportunity to engage with and learn from supply chain experts who will share proven solutions that have allowed their businesses to streamline planning processes, harness data management software to automatise and track deliveries, and optimise cross-border transportation of goods that require customs clearance.

The leading theme and primary goal of RI.Logistica is to help science get in place.

Helmut Schober, Director, Institut Laue-Langevin, EIROforum Chair is one of the speakers of SESSION 1: Setting the Scene of RI Logistica. In this session, experts and high-level speakers from academia, research infrastructures and international organisations will introduce the latest trends in logistics and supply chain management. They will share with the audience how the field has been affected due to the on-going global pandemic and how they have quickly adapted to the situation and developed new ways of working.

Next to the EIROforum Chair, members from different EIROforum institutions will participate and intervene in this online event.

The event aims to facilitate the transfer of know-how from the logistics industry to the RI landscape of Europe and establish a new forum for best practice exchange. By doing so, RI.Logistica will support research infrastructures in developing in-house expertise that will allow them to address any logistical challenge by building on well-established processes deployed and tested by the industrial world. In research, these challenges may vary from the shipment of tiny samples invisible to the naked eye, to transportation of vaccines under strict temperature conditions, and moving of giant scientific equipment across continents.
