Our Mission

PIPMG’s aims and principal activities.

The PIPMG exists primarily to support development of the Project Management profession in the global pharmaceutical, biotech and associated industries by:

  • Encouraging recognition of the key role of project management in the industry

  • Enabling learning and sharing of best practices in portfolio, programme and project management

  • Providing a forum for communication and information exchange between members.

  • Providing Training, Coaching and Continual Professional Development

  • Introduction, participation in and support of initiatives intended to improve the practice of project management internationally

Key drivers for our activities

A key activity is the organisation of meetings for information sharing, learning and networking. The topics we select for meetings are driven by what have always been key challenges for life science project management:

  • Project management in life science is not a ‘chartered’ role and there are no mandatory accreditations or qualifications for it. Your role may be poorly defined, and we can help to clarify it.

  • Life science technology and organisational systems are always moving forward, and the project manager is often too busy to keep up with the latest thinking. We provide focused and cost-effective meetings where you can do so


Another key activity is provision of training and coaching, specifically relevant to the Pharma/Life Science sector.

  • Life science in particular works with complex structures – cross-functional teams, external partnerships of many kinds. Taking a leading role within these is challenging, especially for those new to the role. We can help build the necessary skills.
