The PMI Sponsored Research Program awards grants of up to US$50,000 per project to support research whose themes and perspectives have direct application to theory and/or practice of project management. PMI invites proposals from individuals as well as multi-disciplinary teams both within and outside the field of project management.

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. For 2020, special consideration will be given to proposals that address the following areas:

  • Key success factors in scaling agile in large corporations
  • Digital transformations and the role of project management offices
  • The future of work
