The idea of ECoL, Emerging Concepts of Logistics, was formed with the intent of creating a multidisciplinary network between young academics and professionals together with stakeholders from industry, policy and science with various focal points of logistics. As one way of building such a network, the establishment of a summer school was conceived. For the first time, the ECoL Summer School took place in August 2015 in Istanbul on Koç University’s scenic campus. The second edition of summer school took place in Duisburg 2016 where the third summer school will be taking place this year between 14th-23rd of August, 2017 as well. More information about the summer school can be found here.
