Complex research, technology and engineering projects in academia may have a number of characteristics, such as being high value, international, a large number of partners, possessing exacting requirements or demanding stakeholder needs that have to be met. The management of such projects may present a number of challenges, which can be technical, commercial or people related. Adopting a structured and process-driven approach through deploying project and engineering management principles can help to address these challenges and support the delivery of such projects. Over the last 12 years, the presenter of this seminar has been involved in the design and delivery of a wide range of projects at Imperial College London. This includes the development of university-industry research collaborations and international research programmes, establishing world-class research centres and overseeing the design and installation of complex engineering installations. The seminar will highlight practical applications of project and engineering management by drawing on this experience, which has been gained in a university environment and through extensive engagement with industrial companies.
