Submit your nomination for the 2021 EURO EEPA award

There is limited time left for OR Society members to submit a nomination to the remaining 2021 EURO awards.

EURO (The Association of European Operational Research Societies) is encouraging applications for its EEPA award, the deadline for which has now been extended to 14 February. 

The EURO Excellence in Practice Award (EEPA) celebrates outstanding accomplishments in the practice of OR. The jury, who will decide upon a shortlist of finalists to present their work at the EURO-k conference, are looking for an application of OR with a real impact on practice and original features, whether in methodology, field of application and/or implementation.

The award is open to applications from OR specialists from any part of the world that have a paper on their work published within the last four years. To recognise their efforts the award includes a certificate of excellence in OR practice for each author of the paper and €3,000 to be shared between the authors.

The 2019 winners of EEPA were Yves Lucet and Warren Hare, both of University of British Columbia, for their paper on ‘Towards Optimal Alignment Design for Road Construction – Using Optimization to Design Safe Roads at Minimal Cost.’ For information about how to apply for this year’s award, please visit the EURO website here.

With the deadline for this award fast approaching, interested applicants are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
