See the figure below for important steps to follow in the IPMA Global Research Awards application process. If you are interested in applying for a research Award, download the Application Form, gather the required information and complete the Form. Also see the detailed time schedule for important dates to remember! All documents can be downloaded from the bottom of this page.
Collecting the required evidence and completing the Application Form provides you with a unique opportunity to review and document your own and your team’s performance whilst deriving lessons learnt that you can apply to future research initiatives. It also requires you to proactively engage with your project sponsor, client and key stakeholders.
The Application Form requires you to demonstrate, through narratives and documentary evidence, outstanding achievement and/or innovation in project management over a cumulative period of more than two years. Researchers may come from academia, other research institutions or industry. Researchers may come from disciplines other than project management but must contribute to the development of project, programme, portfolio management, project-oriented companies and IPMA standards. The candidates apply with a research project. The research project must have had at least a duration of one year and must be completed, when the application is handed in, that is the basis of the judges’ evaluation.
