Welcome to the Operations Research and Scheduling research group

This website displays activities done at the Operations Research and Scheduling (OR&S) Research group of the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration at Ghent University (Belgium). Most of the activities are done in collaboration with Vlerick Business School and other international universities and with partners such as OR-AS, PMI-Belgium, EVM-Europe, and others. 

As the URL name suggests, we have a main focus on everything that is related to Project Management. However, our research activities have a much broader focus than solely Project Management. Whatever the research topic is, we always approach a problem from an Operations Research point-of-view, and we focus very much on Scheduling problems (hence, the OR&S research group), such as project scheduling, personnel scheduling, machine scheduling, etc..

Enjoy browsing our website, and feel free to send an email for further questions, comments, remarks, etc…
