On 22-24 June 2015, The Bartlett School of Construction and Project Management will host the bi-annual IRNOP conference.

The International Research Network on Organizing by Projects (IRNOP) was founded in 1993 as a community of scholars and practitioners with a common passion for projects, project organizing and temporary organizations. The IRNOP network includes members from all over the world, with cross-disciplinary backgrounds in business, economics, engineering and management.

The network prides itself on its independence – avoiding any central administration – and aims to share local project initiatives and innovations on an international platform.

In keeping with its vibrant international spirit, the bi-annual conference has been held in 11 cities across the globe since it began.

IRNOP 2015 theme

London depends on the power of projects to maintain its leading position as a global city. Projects are used to create new and thriving urban spaces, replace and renew ageing Victorian infrastructure, launch entrepreneurial ventures, construct iconic buildings, stimulate fusions between the arts, technology and culture, and forge new collaborations between universities, government and industry. London is the home of Europe’s most ambitious megaprojects and programmes – London 2012 Olympics, Crossrail, Kings Cross, and The Shard.

In 2015, IRNOP will celebrate ‘The Power of Projects’.
