A window on the world of O.R.?
The “invisibility cloak” of science fiction is now fact, albeit with limitations. O.R. could claim to have had the power of invisibility for years, though not by desire; what we want is the opposite - a high-visibility jacket! Indeed, part of the mission of the OR Society is to help make our presence more visible. But perception involves both the observed and the observer. And all of us have open and hidden parts.

Science council appointment

Professor David Croisdale-Appleby OBE, FACSS has been appointed Chair of the Science Council.

He is a fellow of several learned and professional organisations, chair of the Public Health Advisory committee of NICE and is on the board of a number of groups linking education and health.
David said that he is looking forward to helping the Science Council grow as he believes ‘the success of the Uk as a nation is highly dependent on our expertise in all the disciplines of science’ especially post-Brexit.
He added, ‘Science Council registration and Chartership indicate a scientist or science technician who is seriously committed to their own continuing professional development and conduct. These are the scientists that employers will increasingly look to have as part of their teams.’
