CoGrowth Project academics presented their latest research findings at the LRN2021 Conference between the 8-10th September. This year’s conference took place virtually, and the theme was ‘Sustainable and resilient supply chains in disruptive times’. Project lead, Dr Vasco Sanchez Rodrigues, was this year’s conference Chair.
The 165 conference delegates, from industry and academia, were invited to attend special stream webinars on the morning of 8th September, where academics presented their research abstracts to attendees and engaged in a Q&A session afterwards. CoGrowth academics attended the ‘CoGrowth to enable economic prosperity, resilience and sustainability : the food and beverage supply chains’ stream, led by Professor Mellie Pullman, Portland State University and University of Groningen, and Dr Timothy Ramjaun, CoGrowth Project, Cardiff University.
Included in this stream were three research abstracts by CoGrowth academics stemming from project research on topics such as collaborative procurement, agent-based simulation and modelling, and the role of industrial clusters in facilitating innovation.
This served as a great opportunity to share the key project research themes and outputs with those in the logistics research network community and supporting industries.
