SuperGreen Kick Off Meeting

The kick off meeting of project SuperGreen is scheduled to take place in Athens on Feb. 2-3, 2010.

A new EU project entitled “Supporting EU’s Freight Transport Logistics Action Plan on Green Corridors Issues” (abbreviated name “SuperGreen”), with NTUA-LMT assuming the role of Coordinator, has started on Jan. 15, 2010. The 3-year project is a Coordinated Action supported by the European Commission (DG-TREN) in the context of the 7th Framework Programme. The purpose of the project is to promote the development of European freight logistics in an environmentally friendly manner. Environmental factors play an increasing role in all transport modes, and holistic approaches are needed to identify ‘win-win’ solutions.
