Operational Research, Workshops and Events

Pro Bono O.R. is running a workshop at Evolve (Greater Manchester) 13/6/14

GMCVO has partnered with NCVO to bring Evolve to Greater Manchester.

This one-day conference will focus on how the northern voluntary sector is responding and reacting creatively to current massive political, economic and social changes through practical action, mobilisation and completely new ideas.

The conference welcomes anyone from the voluntary sector, regardless of the size, shape and mission of your organisation, and also people from the public, private and academic sectors who are interested in the voluntary sector.
