Advisory Board

The Advisory Board has been established comprising key representatives from authorities, policymakers, long haulage operators and industry, to advise and help guide the process of defining the recommendations for implementation of the innovations and use cases, developed within the LONGRUN project: with the expertise, professional knowledge and bird’s eye view, the members of the Advisory Board will play an important part in contributing to the success of the LONGRUN project, helping to provide full commitment to the recommendations developed.

The purpose of this group is to increase the probability of wide market acceptance of the developed and evaluated use cases and with that a better market penetration. One of the main goals of the project is to develop various “roadmaps” for authorities, NGOs and transport & logistics & fuels industry.
