OBJECTIVES Ecologistics aims to improve the collaborative information flow between large companies and SMEs in North West Europe (NWE) by developing an ICT tool for supply chain synchronisation over the EPC network. Two case studies will demonstrate the maturity of the technology for tracking and tracing as well as the feasibility for companies to work together over a secure and reliable application.
TIME FRAME Start Date: 01.01.2011 End Date: 30.09.2015
SHORT DELIVERABLES SUMMARY The tools developed by Ecologistics will enable an improved data exchange between the actors from different levels of Supply Chain. Currently, large companies and SMEs are not operating at the same information level: SMEs have little time and no internal resources to match their current organization to an international and standardized transport flow. Ecologistics will provide solutions to fill the information gap between large companies and SMEs by promoting a collaborative information network based on a European standard called Electronic Product Code Network (EPC Network), which enables direct connection between people and travelling objects (concept of Internet of Things).
TARGET AUDIENCE Small and medium entreprises
SME targets are multi-sector, going from producers, transporters, through logistician service providers or retailers to infrastructure managers.

The project is funded under the EU LifeLong Learning program, sub program Leonardo da Vinci.
The project main aim is to transfer the innovation already developed in the design, delivery and assessment of various safety and security modular courses including Simulation based training and e-learning from partner countries to develop an enhanced training programme in order to fill the security gaps created as the result of increased complex operational activities in ports which are vital for the shipping that more than 90 % of the world trade depends on.
The proposed training programme will allow skilled trainers to operate in all EU Member States and train port security personnel working at SPS-compliant port facilities. This will boost the performance, efficiency and capabilities of these employees, contributing to their personal skills development, which is fundamental to Europe’s knowledge society. Port security personnel will thus be better prepared to meet new challenges, which enhance their employability at national and transnational level and increases worker mobility throughout Europe.
