The initialism PBI stands for Project Based Industry, and it was established in 1993 when first multidisciplinary research programs were initiated at Åbo Akademi University. These programs were run together with companies in industrial project business. PBI still has a partner contract with Åbo Akademi University.
PBI board members are Kim Wikström (chairman), Johan Edqvist, and Axel Bendrik.
The Foundation for Project Research is our main owner. The foundation was established in 2001 in order to offer a multidisciplinary home for the research and consulting activities at PBI Research Institute.
The purpose of the Foundation for Project Research is to promote and support research in business management, especially in the areas of project business. The foundation will have a web page soon.
