IPMA International Project Management Association


Research is an essential aspect of any profession and IPMA´s mission is to provide a link between research communities and IPMA members. This overall objective is achieved by participating in a variety of research events, by organizing research conferences, seminars and workshops with a specific focus as well as facilitating research activities across the IPMA Family. On top of that, we recognise research excellence through a programme of the IPMA Global Research Awards and encourage researchers by providing prizes for research papers at conferences.

Our vision is to create a global value space for research activities to shape the future of project, programme and portfolio management.

  • Through our research activities, IPMA ́s differentiating strengths are made clear to all interested parties, from practitioners, to managers and executives, to nations, and to the society at large
  • Through our research activities we actively support the development of IPMA Global Standards, Products and Services, being the reference for worldwide, cross-cultural competent and performing project, programme and portfolio management
  • Through our research awards, IPMA ́s visibility is widespread and the brand value of IPMA is verifiably clear, especially in the area of “Project Excellence”
