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.

YOR18 – OR – A Twenty Twenty Vision

REF 2021

Although it is still some four years away, most of the important decisions have already been taken regarding the next Research Excellence Framework (REF2021).

Outputs will account for 60%, Impact 25% and Environment 15% which means that ‘impact’ is even more important than it was in 2014. Also, the four main panel chairs have been appointed: Medicine, health and life-sciences – Prof John Iredale, Bristol; Physical sciences, engineering and mathematics – Prof David Price, UCL; Social Sciences – Prof Jane Millar, Bath and; Arts and humanities – Prof Dinah Birch, Liverpool. Nominations/applications for sub-panel chairs have already closed and the appointments will be made shortly.
