We build project management and leadership capacity in the research sector.

Origin Story

Research Project Management (RPM) was founded in 2013 by P. Alison Paprica. As the director responsible for up to $60 million (CAD) of research funding per year at the Ontario Ministry of Health, Alison saw that many excellent research teams struggled with planning, leadership, and management.

In response, she developed a suite of simplified project management tools and processes and a range of training and capacity-building options for people interested in learning a better and simpler way to lead and manage their research.

Since 2013, over 1,400 research team members – from principal investigators to graduate students – have participated in RPM webinars, workshops, group training, or individual coaching sessions.
