Heartbreaking information from the 11th IPMA Research Conference in Nanjing, China
With deep sadness, we have to inform you about Prof. Dr. Yvonne Schoper’s unexpected passing during an IPMA conference in Nanjing, China, on April 22.
Since early 2021, she has served internationally as Vice President of IPMA, and previously held other positions. She always represented project management like no other, both in her everyday professional life at the university in Berlin, within the framework of the German Project Management Association as well as in many countries at conferences, workshops and in meetings. Her life was filled with the desire to inspire young people, especially women, to the cause of project management.
She established an international benchmark with her studies on the projectification of the economy in Germany and beyond. She was an enthusiastic sailor and always enjoyed dancing and her life. That is why it is so inconceivable that she is no longer with us.
We will keep the memory of Yvonne Schoper alive and her life’s work will always be remembered.
On behalf of the Executive Board, management office and employees, we extend our deepest sympathies to Yvonne’s family.
For those that wish to offer messages of condolences to Yvonne’s family, please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org.
