European framework for ‘Knowledge Triangle’ in the logistics sector

Unipi Team Leader: Marco Giannini, Department of Economics and Management  

The idea of this project came out of several discussions and analysis of European and national policies in supporting 'knowledge triangle' implementation in order to assist the international, European and national targets related to Logistics and Supply Chain Management profession. The Project aims to link higher education, research and companies for a systematic analysis and development of Logistics and SCM as critical activities for all businesses and for not-for-profit organizations to be efficient and effective. The consequences of heterogeneous implementation of 'knowledge triangle' in this sector leads to limited transparency and mutual trust among the key stakeholders: HEIs, companies, research organizations. Therefore, this influences both the quality and relevance of the HEIs, and the business competitiveness at European and national levels. To help global competitiveness, it is necessary to establish a cooperation between universities, research and companies. This cooperation can be beneficial for the Logistics and Supply Chain Management profession as it can help in harmonising qualification and certification systems to make them more usable during the recruiting processes. Competences developed and taught by Universities should be aligned and coherent with the qualification systems adopted by professional associations.
