EFLE Research project: Future Competencies for Logisticians

During several EFLE meeting future competencies for logisticians were on the (formal and informal) agenda.

In 2014 (Emmen) colleague Kees Elbers introduced us to new developments concerning the logistics curriculum (based on future requirements for logisticians) and started a discussion in our forum about this issue.

A group of EFLE members (Daniela Tanhua, Burkhard Schmager, Nick Hubbard, Anne- Chantal Drain, Karen Van Bastelaere, Lene Buhl, and Jan Jansen) developed during the last 5 EFLE meetings (2015: Madrid, 2016: Hasselt, 2017: Besancon-Vesoul, and 2018: Rotterdam) a project called “Future Competencies for Logisticians”.

Now a pilot group started: SAMK, HOGENT and HAN with three students (Ha, Lisa and Lin). The students are studying logistics at SAMK, HOGENT and HAN and they are going to use this research for their graduation projects.

Survey Educational games in Logistics and SCM

Survey for research regarding Educational games in Logistics and SCM

Dear EFLE members,

Educational games as a simulation of real-world scenarios play an
important role in business, economics and management studies in higher
education as well as in companies.

We would like to understand the values of these educational games in the
fields of supply chain and logistics management through an in-depth
review, classification and analysis of their value propositions. Continue reading ‘Survey Educational games in Logistics and SCM’

SIL project

The Sustainability in Logistics (SIL) project took place in 2009. The goal of the project was to develop a quick scan to measure how well companies perform in the field of sustainability in logistics. Students of two universities (HAN in The Netherlands and CSU in Russia) performed their research on this topic on a theoretical level (what indicators should be included in a quick scan; and why they should be included) and a practical level (field research in a company in a certain industry in their home country).
