Introduction

EUROYoung was born in 2018 to bring together young researchers in operational research, belonging to the member societies of EURO. For the moment, EUROYoung is not a EURO working group. The EURO Executive Committe has expressed its support to the group for the organisation of five European Young Researchers events (2019 to 2023), after which a more permanent decision will be made.

The objectives of EUROYoung include:

  • Fostering collaboration among students and early-career researchers in O.R.;
  • Providing young O.R. scholars and practitioners with tools to advance their careers, mainly through training;
  • Creating networks both among young researchers and with more senior leaders in the field of O.R.;
  • Connecting demand and offer in the O.R. job market, both in academia and the industry.

In the short- and medium-term, the main focus is the organisation of events targeted at students and young researchers, including seminars, workshops, schools, tutorial sessions, and webinars. Our objectives when organising these events are:

  • To create a bond between researchers going through a delicate phase of their career and preparing themselves to be the faculty and practitioners of tomorrow.
  • To promote peer-education and give young researchers the opportunity to teach their colleagues something unique they have learnt.
  • To facilitate sharing knowledge from established excellent O.R. “seniors” to the new generations.
  • To provide very affordable (approaching zero-cost) opportunities to young researchers to present their work, learn, and network.
  • To promote EURO, its activities, instruments, and resources.

Structure

EUROYoung is born with a very informal structure. We are now bootstrapping the organisation and we are doing so along three directions:

  • By recruiting new members: individual young researchers enrolled in their respective national societies.
  • By reaching out to national youth chapters, in those country where they exist.
  • By promoting the creation of youth chapters in countries where they don't yet exist.

Membership requirements

If you like to engage with your peers from many different countries, believe that together we can create amazing new opportunities for young O.R. researchers, and value friendship as much as professionalism, do not hesitate to sign up to our Google Group!

To keep EUROYoung true to its name, we would like our members to:

  • Be members of any EURO national society.
  • Be undergraduate, graduate, doctoral students, young faculty or practioners in the field of O.R. or, anyways, have a strong interest in operational research, decision science, machine learning, or data science.
  • Be at most 35 years old or, otherwise, having completed your PhD not more than 5 years ago.
