Airbnb and WEP teaming up to boost women entrepreneurship

“After sickness led me to lose my job, I thought I had no future. Airbnb Experience helped me to escape from my bad thoughts by providing guidance towards new success.” Debora Maria Lanini from Italy was one of five female entrepreneurs from the Airbnb community invited to share their story at “Boosting female entrepreneurship in Europe”. Taking place in Brussels, the event marked the beginning of a new partnership between Women Entrepreneurs Platform (WEP) and Airbnb. Sharing resources and best practices, they will be organising workshops across Europe in the coming months.

The event was hosted by Claudia Tapardel MEP, who stated that European institutions should do more to encourage female entrepreneurship. “Beyond the moral support, we need concrete instruments, such as financial aid or training, to support women who want to develop a career in business.”

The dialogue, facilitated by logos, was a success for both the audience and the organisers. Pooja Tanna, Airbnb Senior Global Experiences Manager, and Cheryl Miller, WEP board member and founder of the Digital Leadership Institute, highlighted the importance of this new partnership aiming to support female entrepreneurs.

‘’We, The Riders”: FIM calls for greater visibility for motorcyclists

In August 2018, bikers from all over the world started joining the world wide campaign “We, The Riders launched by one of logos’ first clients – the International Motorcycling Federation (FIM).  The campaign, launched at the Austrian round of MotoGP, is a new initiative by responsible motorcyclists who share the joy of riding motorcycles and are adamant about the need for safer roads.

On 10 October 2018 the campaign was officially launched in Brussels. At FIM‘s Annual Policy Debate ‘Riders & Drivers: Fighting Invisibility Together’, organised with the support of the Logos Public Affairs team, policy makers, industry representatives and members of the motorcycling community were presented with FIM’s vision for roads built and planned with all users in mind. The event was co-hosted by MEP Wim van de Camp, EPP Coordinator of TRAN Committee and MEP Karima Delli, TRAN Committee Chair.

The focus of the “We The Riders” campaign is “visibility” – i.e.  the need for riders not only to be seen in traffic  but also to be borne in mind by decision makers as motorcyclists are often overlooked.  The FIM stands by the riders who take their responsibility and, together, we are all demanding that everyone else takes theirs. Partners of the campaign include Dorna, the Red Bull Ring circuit, ACEM, and many MotoGP stars.

The campaign was also endorsed by  the European Commissioner for Transport Mrs Violeta Bulc and Mr Jean Todt, President of the FIA and UN Special Ambassador for Road Safety. This campaign is a contribution by the FIM to the United Nations Decade of Action.

Logos & MCI Benelux kick off promising Sherlock H2020 project

MCI Benelux and Logos are pleased to announce that the European Commission’s H2020 programme had agreed to financially support SHERLOCK. It seeks to develop new applications for human robot collaboration in the production of elevators, industrial modules, aeronautics and machine tools. The project, which will run for a period of 3 years, gather among others Comau Spa (Italy), VDL Industrial Modules (Netherlands), United Technologies Research Centre (Ireland), Intrasoft International SA (Luxembourg) and Fraunhofer Gesellschaft Zur Foerderung (Germany).

Human robot collaboration now addresses the need for flexible production, but some limitations remain. It does not cover all applications and it is still very complex. SHERLOCK aims to introduce the latest safe robotic technologies in production environments, enhancing them with smart mechatronics and AI-based cognition, creating efficient HRC stations that are designed to be safe and guarantee the acceptance and well-being of operators.

MCI Benelux and Logos will act as the consortium partner in charge of dissemination and exploitation. The project will also seek to contribute to the debate on future EU regulations and standards related to human robot collaboration.
