The Behavioural OR, Decision Analysis, Defence and Public Policy Design SIGs are holding a joint event focussed on 'Bridging the gap between analysis and implementation'. The aims for the event are to identify common success factors for the ready exploitation of analysis products and to identify knowledge gaps that should be addressed through research.

The morning session will comprise a number of short talks from a mix of OR academics and practitioners including Prof. Colin Eden (Strathclyde University), Mr. Peter Miles (Catalyze Consulting), Mr. Max Moullin (Sheffield Business School), Mr. Rob Solly (Dstl), Prof. Leroy White (Warwick University) and Dr. Mike Yearworth (University of Bristol).

The afternoon session will comprise two interactive workshops to identify (i) common success factors for the ready exploitation of analysis products and (ii) knowledge gaps that should be addressed through research.

Places are limited and so if you have not already registered for this event then please contact Peter Miles – petermiles(at) - no later than Thursday 8th October.

Venue: Dstl Portsdown West (PO17 6AD)
Date: Friday, 16 October 2015 at 10:00 - 16:00
