Ann Vereecke becomes Honorary Fellow of EurOMA
During the 21st EurOMA Conference in Palermo (Italy) Vlerick professor Ann Vereecke received the EurOMA Fellowship Award. This award is granted by the European Operations Management Association in recognition of Ann’s contribution to Operations Management research and education in Europe, and as a sign of respect for her service to EurOMA and the Operations Management community in Europe.
Needless to say that Ann feels very honoured: “I have been involved in the association for many years. I actually stepped in the footsteps of colleague and emeritus professor Roland Van Dierdonck, who was one of the founding fathers of this European association. We co-organized the annual conference in Ghent in 2000. In the years that followed, I have been active as a board member of EurOMA, and I have been the EurOMA president for three years. In addition to being a recognition for the service to the association, it is also a recognition for my contribution to the Operations Management field in Europe. This appreciation by academic colleagues is probably what makes me most happy.”
The European Operations Management Association was established in 1993 and is Europe's leading professional association for Operations Management. It’s an international network of academics and practitioners from around the world who have a common interest in bridging the gap between research and practice in the field of Operations Management.
