APM sponsors the 'Power of projects'
Posted by APM on 19th Jun 2015
APM is sponsoring the prestigious academic event IRNOP 2015 – the International Research Network on Organising by Projects.
This year’s theme, the ‘Power of projects’, is being hosted by The Bartlett School of Construction and Project Management at UCL on 22-24 June.
IRNOP connects scholars and practitioners with a passion for projects, project organising and temporary organisations.
APM’s research manager, Daniel Nicholls said: “By sponsoring IRNOP 2015, APM is demonstrating its support for academia and research, particularly within the UK.
“APM understands the importance of academia and research in driving forward the project management profession both in the creation of new and existing knowledge which can be used to enhance successful project delivery,” he added.
The conference coincides with the development of APM’s own research function, which aims to support the latest trends arising from academia.
A write-up of the key themes from the event will follow.
