Initatives & Research Projects

At the Institute of Logistics, we conduct research on all issues in the areas of internal and external logistics. We support regional companies from East Frisia in smaller research projects, but are also part of larger, European-wide research projects.

The common goal of our initiatives and projects is to strengthen research in the region between business and science and to advance in the area of process optimization but also in the area of sustainability.


In this project, a sustainable approach for the end of life of offshore wind turbines is to be developed. Cost-efficient as well as climate-friendly methods for dismantling and recycling are the main goals.


GreCOR promoted the development of a co-modal transport corridor in the North Sea region. In this collaborative approach, the focus was on secondary networks and regional hinterland around the Oslo-Randstad Green Transport Corridor.


In cooperation with regional companies, we coordinate the scientific spectrum around the topics of "Green Technologies, Sustainability and Social Responsibility".
