The Material Handling Forum (MHF) aims at narrowing the gap between material handling (or Intra Logistics) research and practice. It does so by promoting and disseminating academic knowledge, sharing innovative developments in material handling practice, generating research questions, and co-developing new research themes. It provides a meeting platform for academics, industry partners, and administrations, through seminars organized around MH topics. MHF has academic and company partners. Company partners can co-develop the research agenda with respect to both applied and more fundamental research.
