Description: EURO is the 'Association of European Operational Research Societies'. The objectives of EURO aim to promote Operational Research within Europe.

EURO is a nonprofit association domiciled in Switzerland. The members of EURO are normally full members of IFORS and comprise the national Operational Research (OR) societies of countries, most of whom are located within Europe.

EURO organizes a number of different conferences and events throughout each year.

- The EURO-k conference series is the major EURO event. It is hosted by one of the EURO member societies and typically attracting around 2000 participants. The conferences take place yearly, except the years when there is an IFORS triennial conference.
- EURO organise and support more specialised conferences. A limited number of participants are supported in attending a conference, proposed by a member of a member society of EURO, which focuses around a specific theme.
- EURO (co-) organizes and supports joint conferences with national OR Societies outside EURO and other regional bodies within IFORS. Significant financial support (up to 10,000 Euros per year) can be made available for the organization of such events.
