  Workshop Participants EME

The workshop "Sustainability and Decision Making" took place on February 25 and 26, 2015, at RWTH Aachen University. The workshop of the GOR working group "OR im Umweltschutz" (operations research on environmental protection) was organized by the EME research area and hosted more than 40 participants from five countries. There were overall 11 talks in two days, including a guided debate.

During the discussions at the workshop and the social events (e.g., city tour and workshop dinner) participants agreed upon the need for more research in this socially relevant and heterogeneous research topic, integrating interdisciplinary perspectives.
