According to PMI’s recent Pulse of the Profession ® report, only 40 percent of organizations say they prioritize attracting and hiring the young generation of project professionals. But what the Future 50 list highlights is that this next generation will be crucial to driving value for businesses and society now and in the future.

“As a new generation of leaders rise around the world we are seeing them have additional guiding principles and motivations when compared to earlier generations. Organizations are already rethinking how they can attract, retain and help foster this generation of talent,” said Sunil Prashara, President and CEO of Project Management Institute. “This next generation of project leaders are deeply committed to driving change across the world – from having a deep sense of social responsibility and improving the environment to driving diversity and inclusion. The 50 individuals featured on this list are some of the biggest change makers of their generation. They exemplify the power and transformative change that can happen through projects.”

As part of the July/August issue of PM Network, PMI interviewed this year’s Future 50 winners and other seasoned professionals around the globe to uncover ways to encourage this next generation of talent. The issue also outlines six rules to harness the power of these future-focused professionals, including igniting a learning culture; picking up the pace of development; a flatter, more communicative leadership team; more purpose-driven work; and constant, iterative feedback.

To identify this year’s Future 50 honorees, PMI reached out to hundreds of experts and stakeholders across the globe for nominations. A special committee vetted the rising project professionals and narrowed the options. Finalists were then individually researched and/or interviewed to create a list that represents the full spectrum of regions, industries and achievements in The Project Economy – where work increasingly centers around executing projects both large and small. While some honorees are Project Management Professional (PMP)® credential holders, others would not even describe themselves as project managers. What unites the Future 50 is a commitment to project work as the foundation of positive impact, for today and tomorrow.

ISAE-SUPAERO Continues Its Involvement in the InSight Mission and Reveals the Results of Its Research From Planet Mars5.8.2021 11:24:00 EEST | Press release

Launched by NASA in May 2018, the InSight mission is pursuing the objective of studying the internal structure of the planet Mars using the SEIS seismometer developed by ISAE-SUPAERO. Three studies, published on July 23 in the journal Science, reveal, for the first time, an estimate of the size of the core, the thickness of the crust and the structure of the mantle of the red planet. Three of the co-authors, Raphaël Garcia, Mélanie Drilleau and Nicolas Compaire, are from ISAE-SUPAERO, and are collaborating on this major seismic exploration project, which represents a significant step in the understanding of the formation and thermal evolution of Mars. Before this mission, the internal structure of Mars was still poorly understood. The details of the planet's internal structure and the depth of the boundaries between crust, mantle and core were completely unknown. With the successful deployment of the SEIS experiment on the surface of Mars in early 2019, the scientists collected and ana
