Krakow, Poland

In 2013 IPMA has launched the Achievement Awards to give recognition to individuals (categories: Project Manager of the Year and Young Project Manager of the Year) and to projects run by NGOs, Governments and other organizations (categories: Internationally Funded Humanitarian Aid Project and Community Service / Development Project).

Finalists of the Awards will be invited to the 28th IPMA World Congress in Rotterdam (29th September – 1st October 2014). IPMA World Congress is a single platform to exchange experience of “Project Excellence” with other applicants at international level.

“The awards specifically gave me the opportunity to celebrate the

success of a wide range of projects from a breadth of nations

which I would otherwise not have been able to experience – for example

from vast desalination plants in Australia to IT connectivity for farmers

in Nepal and localized water filtration in Guatemala.“
