These are just a few examples of the projects that members of the PLIKA community are currently working on. By collaborating on these initiatives, community members aim to drive innovation, improve efficiency, and create new opportunities in the logistics and transportation sector.

About the project

Digitalization of operations is a fact and that's why the Escola Europea has developed a training platform that allows performing operations related to logistics and international transport in our Virtual Port Community. Both professionals and students will be able to experience first hand activities related to international trade, while interacting with our simulated companies. 

The Port Virtual Lab provides the practitioner with an experiential learning environment, where users are immersed in a creative social space for designing and experiencing their own training and innovation.

The protection of the environment, sustainability of transport, digitisation, improvement of the quality of life of workforce inside the sector, and the competitiveness of all operators are all fields of work with vast potential in which we can develop ideas and build them up to start-ups at the service of innovation in our sector.


About the project

Most Mediterranean sectors suffer from poor connections between research, development and education, from one side, and, the real economy, from the other side. Unfortunately, many tools used and developed by research and academic actors do not match with actual market needs. Ports are no exception to this situation. TECHLOG wants to strengthen ties between academia and the (trans)port industry (namely the transport inside port areas) in the Mediterranean region. Concretely, TECHLOG will encourage joint Technology Transfer Initiatives (TTI) to achieve common quality standards for transport and port specialized staff. A Mediterranean Open Lab will be created to promote and share those initiatives within the (trans)port communities. These TTI will be tested through pilot actions, in real port operators, and will involve trained staff. For the sake of efficiency and consistency, the project will focus on advanced simulation technologies which are, beyond the shadow of a doubt, among the key success factors for both port workers and port operators. 



About the project

Our innovative simulation platform is designed to support the Green Energy Transition in the Port Logistics Sector. This groundbreaking tool offers a unique opportunity to identify and combine the necessary elements required for a successful transition, while addressing the uncertainties that currently exist within the industry.

One of the primary objectives of this simulation is to assist participants in preparing a comprehensive work plan spanning a period of 5 to 10 years. By engaging with the virtual environment, individuals involved in the transition process can explore different strategies, evaluate potential challenges, and devise effective solutions. The simulation takes into account the dynamic nature of the industry, enabling participants to adapt and refine their plans based on changing circumstances.

Furthermore, the simulation provides a robust framework to quantify the investment budget needed for the transition. It takes into consideration various factors, such as the integration of renewable energy technologies, infrastructure upgrades, and operational changes. By accurately assessing the financial implications, stakeholders can make informed decisions regarding resource allocation and funding strategies.

In addition to the investment budget, the simulation also allows participants to consider potential income from fees that may be applied during the transition. By incorporating revenue streams and analyzing different pricing models, stakeholders can better understand the financial viability of their plans. This holistic approach ensures that the transition not only aligns with sustainability goals but also remains economically feasible in the long run.

We understand the importance of addressing uncertainties and navigating the complex landscape of the green energy transition. Our simulation platform provides a dynamic and interactive environment where participants can explore different scenarios, assess risks, and refine their strategies accordingly. By offering a safe space to experiment and learn from the outcomes, individuals can gain valuable insights that will inform their decision-making process.

We believe that this simulation tool will be a game-changer in facilitating the transition to a greener future in the port logistics sector. By combining elements, addressing uncertainties, and quantifying the investment budget and potential income, stakeholders can develop robust work plans that drive sustainable growth and foster positive environmental impact.

Together, let us embrace this powerful simulation platform and accelerate the transition toward a more sustainable and prosperous future for the port logistics sector.
