Hamburg Logistics Professorium

Networking of science and industry


Together with the KLU Kühne Logistics University, the Logistics Initiative Hamburg has created the Hamburg Logistics Professorium. The aim is to promote and tighten networking between the scientific community and with industry. Several times a year, the relevant professors from the Hamburg metropolitan region meet for this purpose.

Since 2024, meetings are no longer held according to a rigid numerical scheme. Instead, the Professorium has opened up to a new, more open format that offers space for spontaneous discussions, creative ideas and innovative approaches.


The competition is open to professors from the Hamburg metropolitan region who are involved in logistics in the broadest sense of the word in teaching and/or research. The invitations are personal and will be issued by LIHH and KLU. External guests will be invited by the organizers for individual dates.
