As part of the PM Summit, the PMI Portugal chapter in collaboration with renown high schools in Portugal, organized an academic symposium focusing on Sustainability in Project Management thinking about all that are committed to this theme.

We are privileged to partner with Higher School of Technology and Management of the Polytechnic Institute of Porto, Autonomous University of Lisbon, CEFAGE – Center for Studies and Advanced Training in Management and Economics of the University de Évora and the School of Engineering of the University of Minho.

Together, we intend to lay down the foundations for the scientific community to further share, debate and collaborate on very important topics.

The range of possible topics include: Project Management Social responsibility, Project Management economic Responsibility, Project Management Environment Sustainability, Sustainability Programs, Corporate sustainability projects or programs, Environment Projects or Programs, Social Responsibility Projects or Programs, Sustainable Portfolio Management, Not For Profit Projects or Programs, Recycling Projects or Programs, Energy Management Optimization, Scare resources management, Sustainability in social innovation projects, Sustainability in fourth sector projects and UN sustainable development goals.

The presentations were rigorously selected by the Scientific Committee. The publication of the best articles in reference journals (Scopus) of Science is assured.

We will create quality time to learn and debate and a space to celebrate the scientific community with impact on Sustainability in Project Management.

It would be fantastic to count on your contribution to this Symposium!
