Milan, Italy



June was characterized by many initiatives within the community of project managers in Italy. Even if every news story was very interesting it was not possible to include all of them in the report. I propose a selection of the most relevant ones.

At first, we will present some recent events organized by IPMA Italy, in particular the seminar about project complexity, organized in cooperation with ANIMA. A second one is the workshop which involved the leading companies of the recovery of the wreck of the Costa Concordia.

We will continue with the initiatives organized by the Young Crew, in June it took place the launch of the IPMA Award Young Project Manager of the Year. At the beginning of October in Florence will be held the first national forum of young project managers, organized with the support of GE.

Finally some news from the industrial world: Maire Tecnimont was awarded with a contract for the construction of a new ammonium plant in Russia.

Enjoy the reading!
