Friday 25 January 2019 10:36 CET | News

The University of Warwick has launched a new innovation hub, to focus on researching the future of automotive supply chains.

The hub, which has been supported by GEFCO, is linked to the ESRC (Economic and Social Research Council) funded Centre for Doctoral Training at the University of Warwick.

The first two projects will research new circular business models for the supply, refurbishment and re-use of batteries for the electric automotive supply chain, and the use of new technologies to design fully-traceable and re-usable packaging.

A third project will examine the opportunities for logistics service providers to expand their business models to offer supply chain finance complimentary to out-sourcing of material and information flows.
