Welcome to the EURO working group on Practice of OR. Here we present events, news and other information valuable for practitioners of OR as well as academics with an interest in the field.
Time is closing in on our annual work group meeting (28-29 September for keynotes and discussion groups and all of October for a webinar series of contributed talks!) Look at the event page and register if you hasn’t done that already. It’s free and held online.
At EURO-2019 we ran the Making an Impact stream and although the final documentation is still being taken care of there is already a report (with downloadable material) of one of the most well attended sessions.
We have finished our 2nd working group meeting. It was held in Bologna and was a big success with both content and participation where we grew quite a bit from the first working group meeting in Paris.
You can find out all about it on the documentation page for the meeting.
If you want to see what happened at EURO-2018 with Making an Impact, this is the page for you.

If OR is about using modelling, maths and science to help organisations become more effective, then the essence of OR is in its applications.
The EWG-POR aims to bring together all practitioners of OR and analytics who work with clients and problem-owners to help them make better decisions, design better systems, and achieve better insights. Together, we can:
- highlight and share the practical considerations that make doing OR in the real world so interesting and so challenging – the people who must be involved, the unique details of the specific problem situation, the multiple and sometimes hidden objectives
- exchange ideas, knowledge and expertise about ways of developing and improving practice
- develop networks that can be used for collaborations or for support
- make visible the importance of the practice of OR, in EURO.
If you have any suggestions or questions, an event you want to publicise, an issue you want to share, a blog or a case study you want to post, a question you want to put to the community: please contact one of the coordinators.
