It was announced this week that Ireland’s most influential project from the past 50 years is to be recognised as part of the 2019 Ireland Chapter of Project Management Institute’s (PMI) annual National Project Awards in association with PwC.
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of PMI globally this year, the Irish Chapter is now seeking nominations at www.projectawards.ie for projects that have made the greatest impact in Ireland over the past five decades. The winner of the Ireland’s Jubilee Project Award will be revealed at a black-tie ceremony on 14 November 2019 in the Dublin offices of PwC.
Along with the special anniversary award, there are seven categories also open in the prestigious National Project Awards, recognising the country’s forward-thinking project managers and teams, and their innovative projects. The nominations deadline for Ireland’s Jubilee Project Award and all other categories is 6 September 2019.
The other seven categories for the National Project Awards are:
Project Professional of the Year
PMO of the Year
Private Sector Project of the Year (both Irish and Multinational)
Public Sector Project of the Year
Project Management for Social Good (both Corporate and Community).
Speaking on the 2019 Awards, Ireland Chapter of PMI President, Pat Lucey said, "We celebrate the PMI’s 50th golden anniversary with recognition of the country’s ‘golden’ projects, from infrastructure to social change; technology to the arts. To be considered for Ireland’s Jubilee Project Award, these projects need to have delivered real benefits, enhanced the lives of people living in Ireland, or delivered a major positive impact. There are just two requirements — that the project was implemented in Ireland and delivered over the past 50 years."
