Research in Operational Research
Many members of the OR Society are actively involved in research activity. As such it is not easy to gather this rich source of information in one place. In a sense, all O.R. is creative research, but in this section we wish to highlight more fundamental development of methods. This page provides a gateway for users to identify where research in O.R. is being carried out and (as we develop this site) in which sectors. This page also lists major projects where the OR Society has a recognizable stake.
Major research activity supported by the OR Society
The LANCS Initiative
The LANCS Initiative is built on a collaboration between four U.K. Universities: Lancaster, Nottingham, Cardiff and Southampton. The U.K.'s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) granted £5.4 million to support the development of research. www.lancs-initiative.ac.uk
The National Taught Course Centre in Operational Research (NATCOR) is a collaboration between ten universities, to develop and deliver taught courses in Operational Research (OR) to PhD students. NATCOR is funded by EPSRC for the first five years of its life (October 2006 to September 2011) and is supported by the OR Society which is a collaborating partner.www.natcor.ac.uk/node/1

The next version of this list will aim to identify research areas at each University.
