Open Source Innovation Day 2023 of the Open Logistics Foundation in Berlin: When will open source solutions become established in logistics – in 5, 10 or 15 years? The vast majority of participants at the Open Source Innovation Day 2023 (#OSID2023) of the Open Logistics Foundation in the co-working space „Spielfeld“ in Berlin voted for „in 5 years“. Not a single person voted for „in 15 years“. The general mood at the first event of this kind was accordingly characterised by the will to promote open source in logistics. A total of about 80 representatives from industry and research took advantage of this opportunity to broaden their perspective and gain new insights on the topic of open source.
In the last month the Open Logistics Foundation and its partners have used the concept of open ideation to formulate interesting new topics they want to work on. Two of these topics were elaborated in more detail and are now joining the eCMR project, in the Foundations rows of community projects. In the following article, these two new Working Groups and included projects will be introduced.
