The aim of the EffizienzCluster LogistikRuhr is to facilitate tomorrow’s individuality – in terms of the individual supply of goods, mobility and production – using just 75 percent of today’s resources (in ecological and economic terms). Service-oriented architectures, multi-agent systems or the “Internet of Things“ are typical examples of the new forms of control and organization in the logistic systems being developed in the EffizienzCluster. The cluster is paving the way for new types of service, business, training and companies.
In the EffizienzCluster’s joint projects 100 innovations, products and patents are being developed which the research partners or other interested companies will be bringing onto the market, making logistics even more competitive overall.
The EffizienzCluster is also there to help the worlds of business and science to identify new research fields and to get new research projects off the ground – for even more logistic innovations.
