PM² Alliance partners with the EUPM2 Erasmus+ project to define a common university path for future European Project Managers
In the coming years, the European Union will invest an unprecedented amount of money in European history, more than 1,800 billion euros will be available to member states for post-pandemic economic and social recovery. Whether the large amount of money invested by the European Union will bring the desired results will largely depend on the ability to design and manage projects.
Effective project management becomes a critical variable for recovery, however an integrated knowledge framework for the management of European funds is still lacking. PM2 Alliance together with universities and organizations across Europe is partnering the EUPM2 project aiming to define a common university path at European level for future EU Project Managers based on PM2 methodology.
The EUPM2 project is coordinated by University of Rome “Tor Vergata” and has been funded under the Erasmus+ Cooperation Partnership program. The project will gather 7 universities from different EU countries including Spain (Polytechnic University of Madrid), Slovenia (Alma Mater University), Austria (Joanneum University of Applied Sciences), Portugal (New University of Lisbon), Estonia (University of Tartu) and the Czech Republic (University of Pardubice) as well as some associated partners: Unioncamere Europa (BEL), PM2 Alliance (BEL), ARCI (ITA), Coordinadora de ONG (SPA).
The project aims to increasing student’s job opportunities in a dynamic and attractive sector through the improvement of their skills and abilities in managing EU funded projects by defining a common knowledge framework integrating EU Project design and management methodologies. The integration work will be based on the “OPEN PM2” initiative of the European Commission for promoting a common and European wide project management methodology (PM2).
