Sharing ideas between the Health and Third Sector O.R. groups was a great success

After a wonderful break away in sunny Somerset it's exciting to be back in the office and catch up with what's happening with Pro Bono O.R. 

We have 11 projects currently being carried out and have been thrilled to hear that both the volunteers and organisations are really enjoying the experience.

The idea of Pro Bono O.R. originally came about through members of the Third Sector group (part of The OR Society).

Back in June there was a joint meeting held between 2 groups at The OR Society.  The Health and Third Sector groups met to share ideas and learn from one another.  It turned out to be a great success with over 50 people attending. Speakers included Nigel Edwards (CEO, Nuffield Trust), Linda Henry (Director, Unique Improvements), Sam MacKay and John Newman (Apteligen)and Jérémie Gallien (Associate Professor of Management Science and Operations at London Business School)
