Over the past five decades, most large-scale, U.S. research project (>$50 million) have been conducted at national laboratories. The performance of these projects is driven by a complex mix of integrated management systems, clarity of technical objectives, availability of human and physical resources, and continuity of funding. Recently, major research universities without a close affiliation with a national laboratory have been actively pursuing these megaproject opportunities. This lecture will discuss the evolving landscape of how universities are performing on these projects with a special focus on capture, management, and delivery issues. Parallels will be drawn to recently proposed and awarded projects at ASU.
