Call for Applications for the EURO-IFORS Scholarship

The office of the IFORS Vice President for EURO is pleased to announce a sponsorship of up to two participants to join the 2022 EURO Summer Institute on “Location Science” to be held in Edinburgh, United Kingdom, June 11 -24, 2022. The Euro Summer and Winter Institutes (ESWI) are organized to encourage good social and working relationships among promising young OR scientists.

The selected IFORS‐EURO scholar(s) will receive joint sponsorship from IFORS and EURO. IFORS will sponsor the travel costs of the delegate coming from non‐EURO member society. EURO will shoulder expenses related to the registration, accommodation, meals, and social activities to the IFORS fellow. Applicants from developing countries will be given preferential treatment for the slot. Those who have joined EURO Institutes in the past cannot apply.

The basic idea is that around 25 early-stage researchers, who are either PhD students or who have less than two years research experience since completing a PhD, can meet for about two weeks. All participants will have an unpublished paper within the theme announced, and will present their material, discuss it with others and with a handful of specially invited senior experts in the field, and finally prepare a paper to be considered for inclusion in a feature issue of an OR publication. The varied social program prepared for the participants is one of the unique features that enhance the learning activities.
