Students are a vital resource in JOINOLOG’s mission to promote research and innovation in logistics. They represent both research and innovative ideas. In May of 2023, JOINOLOG teamed up with HELP Logistics Jordan and GJU’s Deanship of Innovation, Technology Transfer and Entrepreneurship (DI-TECH), to conduct the first JOINOLOG Hackathon.
Six groups of interdisciplinary students were tasked with the development of solutions – tackeling real live challenges of the humanitarian logistics sector. The respective solution which was deemed most creative and feasible by a Jury of academic theory and humanitarian practice, was rewarded with a cash price. The event took place in GJU’s Innovation Space and kept the students busy for three days. While developing their ideas, they additionally received valuable lessons on topics like acquisition of funding, pitching their ideas and business plan development.

Born in the Covid-caused time of digital gatherings, the JOINOLOG team organizes informal online seminars on logistical topics. Two experts in the field, either practitioners or academics, present their current work. The seminar audience has the chance to discuss with the expert. These exchanges further the connection between our network and extend the knowledge on logistics and SCM in the community.
