BUSINESSES are invited to attend a free event to launch a new centre for operational research and logistics.

The University of Portsmouth is launching the Centre for Operational Research and Logistics to help companies and public bodies apply advanced analytical methods to make better decisions.

The centre brings together the Department of Mathematics, Portsmouth Business School and the Institute of Industrial Research.

Director of CORL Dylan Jones said: ‘Linking with this centre will give executives the power to make more effective decisions and build more productive systems.

‘Mathematicians would often use mathematical modelling to analyse complex situations but what is so exciting about this centre is we’re bringing together brilliant minds from different subject areas to strengthen the quality of operational research here at Portsmouth.’

The launch is Wednesday, June 18 in the Richmond Building. For tickets visit
