1 June 2020 – The Association for Project Management (APM) Awards, sponsored by RPC UK Ltd, are back for 2020, a celebration of the very best individuals, projects, and programs the profession has to offer. APM, the profession’s only chartered body, is calling on the project profession to put themselves, colleague, and their projects forward for an award across 16 categories. The deadline for award entries is Monday 15 June via APM’s online portal.
From aspiring young project managers to complex and transformational projects and programs, both in the UK and internationally, last year’s Awards saw a record number of projects entering with the standard getting higher year on year. The 2019 Overall Project of the Year Award went to North Cumbria University Hospitals Trust & Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, for its new maternity information system – BadgerNet electronic personal health records (ePHR).
Since the coronavirus outbreak, the BadgerNet Maternity and Neonatal platform (supplied by ClevermedLtd) has provided help and support to new parents, families, and clinicians, through secure clinical communication between clinical colleagues, risk alerting to mum and baby, as well as BadgerNet Baby Diary function that allows parents and families secure, real-time access to photos of their baby while in hospital care over the internet through their PC, tablet device, or mobile phone – while neonatal units are in lockdown.
The project of the Year Award 2019 winners also included Heathrow Airport (Technology Project of the Year), Rolls-Royce (Transformation Project of the Year), and Sellafield Ltd. (Engineering, Construction and Infrastructure Project of the Year). A full list of the 2019 Awards winners can be found at www.apm.org.uk.
