Organising such an event is part of DFF’s mandate to identify global trends, understand their impact on strategic sectors both locally and globally, as well as provide a platform for global dialogue that promotes knowledge sharing and understanding of best practices.

DFL organised the forum in partnership with the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies in Italy and with the endorsement of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Robotics and Automation Society Technical Committee on Digital Manufacturing and Human-Centred Automation (RAS-TC). Through a series of timely discussions, the event explored the socio-economic, legal and environmental impacts of technological transformation across the global supply chain in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Open to the public, Frontiers of Logistics 5.0 drew the participation of experts in the fields of logistics, robotics, automation and advanced technology.

Khalifa Al Qama, director of DFL, and Dr Paolo Dario, Chief Scientist at DFL and Professor of Biomedical Robotics at the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies, delivered the opening remarks.

“The DFL is hosting the Frontiers of Logistics 5.0 as part of our commitment to promoting a culture of technological innovation in the UAE by actively participating in the transfer and dissemination of relevant knowledge in partnership with the Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies, Italy,” Al Qama said.
