The new NASA/USRA Center for Program/Project Management Research has been established to support NASA’s Academy for Program and Project Leadership by providing access to the research capabilities of the broader academic community to address the critical management challenges in today’s aeronautics and space programs, while also supporting academia’s mission in workforce development, conducting cutting edge research, and in the management of university-based projects and programs.   In furtherance of these purposes, the release of the CPMR Research Announcement, PHASE1-RA 04-01, solicits Phase 1 proposals in program and project management research, which will be competitively awarded through a peer review process.   

Subsequently, CPMR intends to fund multi-year awards following competitive selection of Phase 2 proposals from successful Phase 1 Principal Investigators (PIs).     

Selected PIs will become CPMR Fellows, and will be invited to participate in the full range of Institute activities, thus becoming a repository of knowledge and expertise to assist NASA with its challenging issues in program and project management.   These appointments might also lead to opportunities for personnel exchanges, and other potential collaborations between the CPMR, NASA, and participating organizations.     

Given the objectives of the CPMR, eligibility is open to university-led proposals; however, where appropriate, participation from other organizations through teaming arrangements with the PIs is encouraged.     

The full text of the Research Announcement, background information on the sponsoring organizations, plus the results of a recent program definition workshop, may be found on the USRA/CPMR website:
