LightUp project is a result of international cooperation between PMI chapters in neighbouring countries (PMI Northern Italy-PMI NIC, PMI Austria, PMI Croatia and PMI Slovenia). It all started in year 2014 with PMI NIC initiative. It is an ideal opportunity to share practical knowledge and experiences from project management, to establish new connections and to international networking.

At every LightUp event each PMI chapter presents a 6-minute presentation for the selected project management topic. Number of presenters is not limited. All presentations are in English language and serve to develop presentational and communication skills. Any advertisements and sales activities are not allowed. At the end, the 4 best presenters are selected among all presenters. Every chapter contributes a small reward for winners. The event ends with unformal gathering for all participants.

Events are free of charge for PMI members and participants are rewarded with PDU’s (4 PDU’s for participants, 6 PDU’s for presenters).
