|Name||EWG POR, EURO working group on Practice of OR|
c/o Seymour House
12 Edward Street
B1 2RX Birmingham
|Coordinator||Tomas Eric Nordlander|
Phone: +47 98824892
|Purpose and history||The network’s objective is to support OR practitioners: people whose primary purpose is applying OR Techniques in a business/government/charity or similar environment. |
This initiative was publicly ‘launched’ at the 2016 EURO Conference in Poznan, but has a much longer history, going back to efforts made in the UK to engage practitioners in the national conference.
This working group aims to enable O.R. professionals to have more impact on the outside world, by helping them find solutions to typical practical challenges, gain understanding of tools/techniques they haven’t used before, build their networks, and learn from others in order to inspire and expand their own practice. We also see great potential in cooperation between practitioners and academics.
|Future activities||The first event will be an autumn/winter event for 2017, details are not yet available but it will most likely be accessible online to get a wider reach out. Other activities that are being planned is to set up a website that can act as a meeting point between practitioners themselves but also between practitioners and academics as well as between practitioners and industry/civil society. We also aim to in the future arrange EURO-mini conferences as well as hosting a track on EURO-k 2018. |
If you are interested in this right now is a great time to get involved since we are still very much in the forming phase of this group.
