Each year, the PMI’s Academic Resources Department solicits proposals for research funding on any topic related to project, program or portfolio management. Awards up to US$50,000 are granted to selected recipients.
PMI seeks proposals from scholars both within and outside the field of project management, including management, organizational psychology, sociology, education, linguistics and others. It encourage proposals on research involving multi-disciplinary teams of investigators or teams consisting of academics and practitioners who bring new ways of thinking and related bodies of literature to the field.
PMI encourages thoughtful, innovative research of two major types:
- Translational research, which may include an evidence-based study of existing research or evidence-building research. We are interested in work that tells a “story of what exists” in the context and/or practice of project, program and portfolio management beyond the current body of knowledge. Scholars in a variety of disciplines and fields of study are invited to bring their particular angle of vision to bear on a research question using PPPM “as the context” of the research.
- Unique, new theory-building research or the integration of existing theories that, together, form an interpretive framework for PPPM.
Submissions focused on software development, mathematical models with little or no direct application, or historical research will not be accepted.
Deadline for proposals submission: 13th April 2023.
