IRNOP was founded in 1993 as a loosely coupled network of researchers and have developed from there, adding researchers in countries all over the world.

The IRNOP network connects scholars with a background in business, economics, engineering, and other fields, with a common interest in projects, project organizations and temporary systems.

The first IRNOP conference was held in Lycksele Sweden, 1994 – and was arranged by Rolf A. Lundin, Johann Packendorff, Anders Söderholm, Tomas Blomquist. Anders Söderholm is now the president of KTH that will host the 30 years anniversary and Johan Packendorff is a professor at KTH.
