Summary on Grant Application Form
This network is currently made up of eighteen universities (including twenty one schools/departments) and involves leading, internationally recognised, experts in the major disciplines that are involved in scheduling research. The network will be open to all UK-based scheduling researchers and we will seek to expand our membership. We are confident that the network will grow in size over the three year funding period. The main aim of the network is to support inter-institutional, multi-disciplinary, high risk/high return, strategic and applied research with the overall goal of developing a fundamentally new and more general approach to scheduling problems throughout the UK industrial and service sector. This will be based on a series of collaborative research proposals which will attempt to gain a deep theoretical understanding of the problems and issues that underpin these practical problems. Another major goal of the network is to provide a supportive and multi-disciplinary environment in which to train postgraduate scheduling researchers. We plain to hold a programme of workshops which will specifically target postgraduates although they will be open to all researchers. Scheduling is an enduring problem that has attracted major research interest from a variety of disciplines over the last forty years. This network aims to help formulate the research questions and directions for the next forty years of scheduling research.
