What is SIL?
SIL (Salon Internacional de la Logística y de la Manunención de Barcelona) is the leading exhibition for logistics, transport, intralogistics and supply chain in Southern Europe. It takes place every year in Barcelona, Spain. According to their dossier, the 21st edition in 2019 hosted more than 650 companies, 250 events and 200 speakers from all over the world. Enide presented its projects at the stand jointly organised by the Logistic Cluster of Catalonia and PIMEC.
Why did Enide participate?
Apart from representing a platform for exchanging knowledge and insights related to the logistics and transportation sectors, SIL Barcelona also bridges Northern and Southern European countries, as well as Latin America, Northern Africa and Middle-East. As such, Enide participated with two of its successful examples of international cooperation under Horizon2020 towards a more sustainable logistics and transport systems, namely Clusters 2.0 and Harmony.
On the one hand, Clusters 2.0 is leveraging the full potential of European logistics clusters for a sustainable, efficient and fully integrated transport system. On the other hand, the recently started Harmony will provide new spatial and transport planning tools to enable a sustainable transition to a new mobility era.
Among other things, Enide is responsible for disseminating and commercially exploiting the results obtained in both projects, as well as creating awareness of the actions undertaken and promoting their innovative solutions among whom may need them. Therefore, SIL stood as a privileged occasion of interacting with a targeted professional audience: policymakers, service providers, industries and associations in the field logistics, transportation, infrastructure, e-business, etc.
