The project process

The project process consists of four stages: preliminary study, launch, implementation and conclusion.

A preliminary study is conducted to describe and assess the project proposal’s feasibility. The preliminary study may include alternative solutions. The proposals are to be described in a preliminary study report. Usually, there is no steering group at the preliminary study stage, as the decision on the project’s implementation has not yet been taken.

The launch stage involves planning the project’s implementation, documenting goals, with costs, stakeholders, communication planning etc. in a project plan. A well-implemented launch stage is crucial to the project’s chances of success. The launch stage includes the appointment of a project principal, steering group and project manager.

The implementation stage is when the project work is carried out. The project manager works together with the project group and reports to the steering group. Depending on the type of project, the implementation stage can take various forms.

The conclusion stage involves writing the final report and submitting the project result to the organisation responsible.

Ongoing projects

Actual University-wide development projects.

Training in project methodology 

Training courses in project expertise and project management are available via Kompetensportalen.

What is the project office?

The project office provides support at the start of the project, in drawing up project plans, suggesting templates, following up and supporting project managers and project principals. The project office deals with projects for which the vice-chancellor, the university director, the study programmes board or the research board have taken decisions on implementation. Those projects are defined as University-wide projects.
