CROSSROADS OF THOUGHT
Fritz Institute brings experts from the private and academic sector to work closely with their counterparts in the humanitarian sector. Crossroads of Thought fosters communication and learning among supply chain leaders from the business, humanitarian and academic communities to focus on:
  • Optimizing public-private collaboration
  • Establishing a community of practice and sharing ideas
  • Gaining insight into disaster relief chains and exploring how they differ from commercial supply chains
  • Identifying joint projects that would form the basis of ongoing dialogue and collaboration between members of the group

The annual Crossroads Conference is the forum to convene business executives, academics and humanitarians. Participants learn about the challenges and opportunities of running effective disaster relief operations, all of which have a significant logistics component. Interactive sessions with representatives of the three sectors leads to sharing of best practices in logistics and supply chain management which can be applied to help strengthen the capabilities of humanitarian organizations.
