OR4Sustainability - Operations Research (OR) for Sustainability: Energy, Mobility, Industry
Duration: 2022 - 2024
Funding: "OERContent.nrw" funding line of the Ministry of Culture and Science together with the Digital University of North Rhine-Westphalia (DH.NRW)
The project Operations Research (OR) for Sustainability: Energy, Mobility, Industry deals with the use of mathematical methods to support decision-making processes. The focus here is on the climate crisis and questions of sustainability - central topics of many courses of study. However, teaching OR methods to students is didactically highly demanding. The project team therefore wants to develop, implement and disseminate a digital teaching/learning tool "Operations Research for Sustainability". To this end, it is being funded with around 500,000 euros.
After project completion, all e-learning offerings will be posted on the state portal for studies and teaching ORCA.nrw (Open Resources Campus NRW). "Both teachers and students will benefit from this, as they will be freely accessible once the projects have been completed," says Science Minister Isabel Pfeiffer-Poensgen.
