The bestLog Workshop III - Actions for Policy Makers and the Industry
The bestLog project (the European platform for logistics best practice), coordinated by the Berlin Institute of Technology, is inviting to its 3rd workshop "Actions for Policy Makers and the Industry" which will take place at the NH Jolly Berlin Friedrichstrasse Hotel in Berlin on October 21, 2008.
In this workshop, which is the third in a series of workshops throughout 2008, Best Practice Case Studies will be presented and logistics professionals from various sectors will be discussing knowledge and innovation management in logistics.
This workshop will address questions such as
o What can firms do to improve available logistics infrastructure?
o Competition vs Cooperation; can environmental concerns soften firms' and governments' stance of collusion?
o Are standards needed for measuring carbon footprints?
o Is there a need for a standard approach to evaluate infrastructure development projects?
The bestLog Project is establishing an exchange platform for the improvement of supply chain management practice across Europe. BestLog aims to set standards for logistics practice and education as well as create growth and employment accordingly.
The workshop is free of charge and registrations can be made online on the bestLog website www.bestLog.org.

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.
Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...
Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.
Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...
Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.
As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...
Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.
With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
