Research events and collaborations
APM research events aim to bridge the gap between theory and practice. Some events are led by APM whilst others may be led by universities or partner organisations and are sponsored or supported by APM.
Festival of Education and Research Awards 2020
21 October 2020
APM is proud to present the Festival of Education and Research, a new event making its debut in 2020. is set to showcase some of the best and brightest new talent among career starters, education and research.
Research collaborations seek to bring together like-minded individuals and organisations to develop and generate innovative research that supports the needs of practice whilst helping to promote a profession built around learning and collaboration.
Project X is a major infrastructure research collaboration between UK universities, the Cabinet Office and Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA) and professional bodies such as APM amongst other partners. The project aims to enhance the capability and reputation of the UK government in the execution of major programmes and projects through the promotion of world-class research and evidence based thinking.
Responsible Project Management
This collaboration between Bournemouth and Portsmouth University’s, the Association of Sustainability Practitioners and APM explores the idea that managing projects responsibly will require new knowledge, skills and capabilities. Future research and education will need to focus on developing practitioners’ mindset, mental models and competencies.
Future of Project Management
Partnership and collaboration between Arup, The Bartlett School of Construction and Project Management at UCL, and the Association for Project Management (APM), with crowd-sourced inputs from the global project management community. It is a compilation of best practice, emerging trends, and forward thinking, an interactive site for debate about change in the project management profession, and a roadmap for future academic and professional research.
