Workshop date changed to June 20th, 2019
EURO Working Group on Operational Research for Development (EWG-ORD) was established in 2006. Its aim is to promote and facilitate communication links among European and other researchers working in areas of operational research for development. EWG-ORD has organized yearly workshops to promote the importance of operational research in improving the lives of people in developing and developed countries.
The EWG-ORD 2019 Workshop continues the 2018 forum for debate and exchange of knowledge and experiences towards the achievement of the United Nation’s 2016 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through the application of OR. In 2019, the Workshop delves deeper into renewable energy, health, and well-being, but we welcome all topics on sustainability.
