Daniel Nicholls, research manager at APM, yesterday said:
“As the chartered body for our profession, we’re proud to play a leading role in adding to the collective body of project knowledge. Our Research Fund consistently attracts creative, original, high quality proposals with the potential to bring new insights to the project community and I greatly look forward to seeing what this year brings.
“I would urge anyone undertaking research in the field of project, programme or portfolio management to consider making a funding application. Alternatively, if you know of anyone undertaking research that’s relevant to our profession, I would encourage you to share details of our Research Fund with them.”
