Research projects and/or programmes

  • Sustainability in Project Management

    Projects are important in achieving a sustainable business strategy. It is therefore inevitable that sustainability and its concept will find its way to project management methodologies, processes and competences. Our research is aimed at developing concepts, models and insights that integrate the concepts of sustainability into the practice of project management.

  • Positive Psychology in Project Management Project Management, like any management, quite often emphasizes the negative aspects of human behavior, activities and results. In our research we try to develop interventions that, based on positive psychology, emphasize the positive aspects of behavior.
