Associated project partnerships of the LIHH

The Logistics Initiative Hamburg also supports its network and members in the successful application and implementation of its own projects through so-called associated project partnerships.

Within this framework, the LIHH supports projects from the network on a voluntary basis by participating in committees or project advisory boards, by communication measures, by surveys, by networking those involved in the project with our members, by conducting surveys, or by providing support in organizing project conferences and events.

The following projects have already been successfully completed with the support of an associated project partnership of the LIHH:


Development of a process for the automated production of preforms using particle foam technology

Partner: Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology ICT,
Institute for Textile Technology (ITA) of the RWTH Aachen University

Sponsored by: Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi, AiF-Project)

Duration: 02/2016 to 08/2018

Platform development with the aim of networking the potential of decentralized, additive production and agile logistics on one platform

Partner: TOP Mehrwert-Logistik GmbH & Co. KG, Software AG, FIR at the RWTH Aachen, Fraunhofer ILT and others

Supported by: Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi)

Duration: 03/2017 to 02/2020

Establishment of regional groups and a well-founded exchange of experience on combined transport with the overall aim of increasing the share of combined transport in total freight transport and thus making a contribution to modal shift and the achievement of climate targets. Preparation of a practical guide for the introduction of combined transport.

The LIHH has supported the project in establishing and accompanying a "Hamburg Regional Group" and has made the project results (especially the developed guideline) available to the network. The participants of the regional group Hamburg were integrated into the working group rail of the LIHH after the end of the project.

Partners: Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics (IML), SGKV e.V. - Study Company for Combined Transport

Sponsored by: Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU)

Duration: 01/2017 to 12/2020

Federated Cyber Physical Systems Digital Innovation Hubs for the Smart Anything Everywhere Initiative

FED4SAE- aims to promote and maintain the digitisation of European industry by strengthening competitiveness in the Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) and Embedded Systems markets.

Partners: Fraunhofer IISB, Intel, Thales, fortiss, and others

Funded by: European Commission (Horizon 2020)

Duration: 09/2017 to 08/2020

SMART_watch is a cooperation platform between key players in the innovation sectors in Central Europe. As part of the SMART_watch project, "Good Practices" were developed and presented and the exchange between regions on the topic of Smart Specialization was promoted. 

Business support organisations, R&D institutes and regional authorities are the pillars of innovation systems. In particular, we believe that they serve as "regional observatories" of technology and market needs and trends. As such, they are important institutions that monitor and monitor technology trends and market developments in the area of smart specialisations, or regional authorities that implement regional innovation strategies (RIS).

The project developed a model of operation and established an international network of regional observatories for intelligent specialisation in Central Europe to observe and monitor technology trends and market developments in the areas of innovative technologies and smart sectors. 

The LIHH supported the project as an associated partner and is part of the network of the regional observatories. 

Partners: 12 partners from 7 countries, including: Hochschule Wismar - University of Applied Sciences: Technology, Business and Design (HSW) 

Funded by: EU Interreg Central Europe

Duration: 07/2017 until 05/2020
