WP1 - ePIGEN Vision, Opportunities & Requirements

WP1 led by the Coordinator (PoA) will undertake a detailed analysis from the perspective of all stakeholders in the TENT & Global Networks with a view to understanding the main challenges and opportunities. WP1 also aims to formulate a detailed project specification, vision, goals and success criteria. WP1 will be used directly in the development of the ePIGEN solution and will set in motion the stakeholder and public engagement process .

List of WP1 Deliverables


D1.1 : Initial Review of EU/Global Initiatives, Policies & Standards D1 1 report FINAL Feedback Revision Final

D1.2 : TEN-T & Global Networks Initial Review of Challenges / Confidential

D1.3 : Arctic & New Trade Routes Challenges D1 3 Artic new trade routes challenges 310521

D1.4 : Initial Stakeholder Requirements Analysis / Confidential

WP2 - Global Visibility Technology and Governance

WP2 will provide the visibility and connectivity architecture & protocols by which actors in the Enhanced Physical Internet enabled Global-European Network (ePIGEN) will share real-time data.

List of WP2 Deliverables

TITLE (all deliverables are confidential)

D2.1 : Early Architecture Prototype

D2.2 : Initial ePIGEN International Cooperation & Governance Model

D2.3 : Final ePIGEN International Cooperation & Governance Model

D2.4 : Soft Network Architecture & Physical Internet Models

D2.5 : Modularization Potential to solve empty container repositioning imbalance

WP3 - Artificial Intelligence and ePIGen Optimisation

WP3 will result in innovative Artificial Intelligence Algorithms, Logistics Optimization & Simulation Software, Laboratory Simulation Techniques and supporting Analysis Methodologies. These solutions will provide a powerful toolset for users (industry & public sector) to develop better understanding of the impact of new concepts, technologies and strategies in European and Global Logistics, and the impact of new trade routes to and from Europe. This will build on the successes of previous projects, but will introduce new advanced algorithms and technologies.

This toolset will also be able to plan, schedule, optimize and manage logistics networks on an operational, day-to-day basis, creating massive cost savings and benefits for industry.
