In February 2019 the Research Institute on Sustainable Economic Growth of the National Research Council of Italy (CNR-IRCrES) promoted a collaboration between firms and research institutes which involved, in addition to IRCrES itself, Blue Logistics Italia, the Department of Enterprise Engineering of the University of Rome “Tor Vergata” and the Department of Innovation and Information Engineering of the University “Guglielmo Marconi”. The collaboration aimed to identify areas of development and implementation of technologies and procedures related to Blockchain in the field of global logistics. In this contribution we will illustrate the development and conformation phases of the collaboration project, presenting the dynamics of interaction between the subjects involved and illustrating the results produced during the work, that was not possible to bring to complete maturity because of the problems that have invested the activity of Blue Logistics Italia in conjunction with the COVID-19 pandemic.


Keywords: knowledge transfer, public-private cooperation, blockchain, logistics.
