Pro&Con - Project Studies Group

Activities & News

 

We develop regular events and activities to open space for reflection on topics related to Project Studies. In particular, we created:

  • Project Seminars Series: like-minded project scholars share their recent publications or work in progress in areas related to Project Studies.
  • Project Studies Reading Group: regular workshop to discuss intelligent works, be it classics or newly published research. We like to think of the reading group as an open space for  reflection shielded from the excessive preoccupation with the production of research articles or proposals. Participants range from full professors to talented master and bachelor students.
  • Where Science meets Project Practice: a large event where scholars, students and practitioners can meet, be inspired and updated on relevant, current and intriguing ideas and concepts in projects. The event is conceptualized and conducted in collaboration with Project Management Institute (PMI) and Ingeniørforeningen (IDA), practitioner-driven organizations. This series has been launched in 20
  • One of events driven by our curiosity and needs like 1-day co-writing workshop on ‘What makes temporary organizations,’ which informed the Special Issue on Advancing Theory and Debates in Project Studies (published at the Project Management Journal)
