This update shows the important work that these talented researchers are doing in the NOVIMOVE project: developing a simulation scenario in which the individual NOVIMOVE innovations are brought together with the aim of assessing the effects at a higher level of analysis.
During this two-day summer workshop in Delft, Eva and Ivo met with academic researchers from Delft University of Technology and the University of Antwerp 🌍, which is a perfect example of the academic-business research relationships encouraged by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 funding opportunities. 💡
In the coming months, the model will be further refined and integrated into the Serious Game 🕹️. Once completed, the Serious Game will allow stakeholders, students, and researchers to learn more about NOVIMOVE innovations 🚢, such as new vessel designs, cargo handling principles, and intelligent scheduling systems, and provide their feedback to further optimize the current inefficiencies in the inland waterway supply chain.
