20 January 2017
PhD candidate Juliano Denicol has been awarded the 2016 PhD Long Term Grant from the Major Projects Association
C&PM is pleased to announce that Juliano Denicol, a C&PM PhD Candidate, has been awarded the 2016 PhD Long Term Grant from the Major Projects Association (MPA). MPA recognises one prominent doctoral research per year to establish a long term partnership between the researcher and its members.
Juliano’s research explores megaproject delivery models through the perspectives of owners and operators. He will conduct case studies on the next generation of UK infrastructure megaprojects: Thames Tideway Tunnel and High Speed 2. The research is aligned with MPA’s core principles of developing capabilities and best practices to improve the delivery of complex major projects, programmes and portfolios.
Commenting on the grant, Juliano said: “I’m delighted with this recognition from MPA and looking forward to work closely with the MPA members. This is a great opportunity to bridge the gap between academia and industry, aligning theory and practice to produce rigorous research with relevant and impactful applications.”
The award follows Juliano's receipt of the PMI Thesis Research Grant in August.
Congratulations to Juliano and his supervisors Dr Stephen Pryke and Professor Andrew Davies. C&PM looks forward to announcing future achievements of this partnership.
