The 7th IPMA Research Conference 2019

The IPMA Research Conference was founded in 2013, and as a Think Tank, aiming to bring researchers, experts, scholars and practitioners in project management together who share a common passion for their discipline. The distinctive feature of this conference is the intense dialogue between practitioners and academics, which can neither be found at scientific or professional conferences. The special spirit of the IPMA Research Conferences can be particularly felt in the World Café sessions where the participants can gain new insight perspectives for today´s challenges in project management.

IPMA Research Conference 2019 will go in parallel with 14th International Conference on Organization, Technology and Management in Construction and IPMA Megaproject SIG which will be a perfect setting for networking. The both conference are serve by the same International Scientific Committee. Also, the conference programme for both conferences will be defined in order to give the conference participants to jointly attend keynotes presentations and social events.
