PROJECT MANAGEMENT INSTITUTE-PMI
Founded in 1969, PMI delivers value for more than 2.9 million professionals working in nearly every country in the world through global advocacy, collaboration, education and research.
Each year, our Academic Resources Department solicits proposals for research funding on any topic related to project, program or portfolio management.
Proposed research must have direct application to some aspect of the project management body of knowledge or its practice.
Awards up to US$50,000 are granted to selected recipients both within and outside the field of project management, including management, organizational psychology, sociology, education, linguistics and others.
We 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.
We invite proposals from scholars both within and outside the field of project management (e.g. management and/or its sub-fields, organizational psychology, sociology, education, linguistics, communications, etc.), whose themes and perspectives have direct application to some aspect of the project management body of knowledge or its practice.
We encourage thoughtful and innovative proposals on any topic, with few notable exceptions. We do not accept submissions focused on mathematical/operations research topics with little or no direct application. This includes research whose rationale does not stem from real world issues or that does not include empirical testing on actual projects. We will entertain proposals on macro level perspectives such as knowledge transfer across projects.
