Welcome to EVM Europe 2014
Newsletter, April, 2014
The sixth edition of EVM Europe is coming closer and will be held in Belgium in December 2014. Prior to this new edition, we intend to keep our participants up to date with news on our upcoming activities and/or recent accomplishments on Integrated Project Management and Control.
This newsletter clearly illustrates what we mean with the EVM Europe “Research meets Practice” mission statement, and includes research news from Germany, three books and PM news from the business school. These topics might give our future participants a flavour of our next event’s topics.
Keep helping us growing our association by sharing this letter with others and inviting them to join our EVM Europe association. This can be easily done by subscribing on www.evm-europe.eu/contact.
