ALICE was officially launched in Brussels, in June 2013. ALICE is an initiative of WINN. WINN stands for the European Platform Driving KnoWledge to INNovations in Freight Logistics. WINN is a 30 months European project co-funded by the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission, LOGISTOP is member of WINN through CNC Logistics, leader of the project. The ETP (ALICE) recognition is a milestone in innovation on sustainable logistics that WINN has achieved with tremendous momentum.


The WINN project:







The European Technology Platform ALICE is set-up to develop a comprehensive strategy for research, innovation and market deployment of logistics and supply chain management innovation in Europe.


The platform will support and assist the implementation of the EU Program for research: Horizon 2020.  ALICE is based on the recognition of the need for an overarching view on logistics and supply chain planning and control, in which shippers and logistics service providers closely collaborate to reach efficient logistics and supply chain operations.


Future research should focus on new concepts in which increased collaboration and coordination will eventually result in the Physical Internet, where complete horizontal and vertical supply chain collaboration takes place. 




European Technology Platforms (ETPs) are industry-led stakeholder fora that develop short to long-term research and innovation agendas and roadmaps for action at EU and national level to be supported by both private and public funding. 


ETPs will therefore be a key element in the European innovation ecosystem and will help turn Europe into an Innovation Union, by taking a holistic view and:

  • developing strategies and provide a coherent business-focused analysis of research and innovation bottlenecks and opportunities related to societal challenges and industrial leadership actions
  • mobilising industry and other stakeholders within the EU to work in partnership and deliver on agreed priorities
  • sharing information and enable knowledge transfer to a wide range of stakeholders across the EU.


More information on ETP's and here for an overview of all the current ETP's.
