13:30-17:00 Session 7B: Healthcare logistics & 5G seminar (Language: Dutch)

Het Nederlandse zorgstelsel behoort tot de besten in de wereld, maar wordt ook geconfronteerd met een aantal uitdagingen. Een van de grootste uitdagingen betreft het inrichten van patiëntgerichte zorg, waarbij die zorg bovendien steeds vaker extramuraal, in plaats van intramuraal, plaats zal vinden. Als gevolg hiervan zullen logistieke stromen van bijvoorbeeld zorghulpmiddelen, voedsel, medicijnen en zorgprofessionals verder fragmenteren. Nieuwe logistieke modellen zijn nodig om deze stromen efficiënt en kosteneffectief in te richten en aan te sturen. Human Care, Vegro en 5Groningen nodigen zorgbestuurders en andere belanghebbenden uit mee te denken over de mogelijkheden van het toepassen van vijfde generatie mobiele communicatietechnologie (5G) in de zorg.

10:00-11:30 Session 15A: E-Commerce

The growth of e-commerce has led to an increasing number of deliveries to cities. In the past years, the number of parcels, web shops, parcel carriers, delivery vehicles and delivery options provided to consumers are increased. Consumers like fast and customized deliveries. In order to win customers, web shops use logistics as a marketing tool. New delivery initiatives follow each other in quick succession. Parcels are delivered where and when the customer wants it. Because of this customization, it is a challenge for e-fulfillment parties to use resources efficiently. Collaboration and coordination become essential. For example, an open network of parcel lockers is an ideal opportunity to optimize the usage of the lockers. In this session, some of these new initiatives will be explained and discussed from an industry and academic perspective.

During the discussion with the audience we will aim to identify critical issues for governance of the PI.

The Blockchain is regarded by many as the ultimate ‘trust machine’ which is deemed to replace traditional banking systems, land registers, public record systems, and even conventional voting systems. Distributed-ledger technology has the potential to  address  the  trust,  transparency,  and  bureaucracy  challenges  that  several  public bodies currently face.

18:00-22:00 Gala Dinner (including visit to the Groninger Museum)

Only accessible for registered guests.

The Gala Dinner is traditionally a highlight in the social programme of all IPIC editions and provides an opportunity for the participants to relax and enjoy meeting outside the conference programme. The doors of the museum will open at 18:00 for you as an IPIC participant, where you have the possibility to visit the exhibition of the famous photographer David LaChappele. His spectacular, colourful, and often controversial portraits of celebrities have become iconic archetypes of our generation. This first large-scale solo museum show in the Netherlands will feature more than 70 works, highlighting areas of the artist’s oeuvre, from portraiture, still life, landscapes and tableaux. This comprehensive survey also introduces LaChapelle’s latest series, New World, in which he attempts to photograph the unphotographable - in a future quest for paradise.

Our gala dinner will start at 19:00 in the Coop-Himmelblau pavilion of the museum.

Freight and logistics generates 7% of global greenhouse gas emissions. How can we realize emission reductions of 50-80% by 2050 while freight demand is expected to triple? This requires a transformation of the sector that pulls everything out of the closet and revisits how the logistics system is designed. Panelists will explore the role of the physical internet, synchromodality, and disclosure of consistent carbon footprints across the global logistics supply chains in decarbonizing the freight sector. During the discussion with the audience we will explore what is needed to help companies realize reductions and what is the role of government and research & innovation?
