EURO Distinguished Service Award

The EURO Distinguished Service Award (EDSA) [formerly known as EURO Distinguished Service Medal*] was approved by the Executive Committee in July 2006. The EDSA should honour extraordinary efforts in recognition of distinguished service to EURO and to the profession of OR. The award is officially bestowed in conjunction with a EURO-k Conference, if there is a suitable candidate. The laureate receives the EURO Distinguished Service Award and a diploma. Only one award may be made on each occasion.

*The award was renamed to better reflect the fact that the physical award has always been an engraved crystal desk ornament rather than a medal.
