Using EVM in Scientific Research

EVM is usually applied where deliverables can be identified and a schedule produced. What happens when you are doing international research where the outcomes are unclear, each phase depends on the success of previous phases and scientists are concerned that project management should not mean bureaucratic overhead and control?

How can we implement EVM, as required by the funding agency while not impeding scientific work? Shining a light on complex decisions and actions enabling scientific teams to foresee impacts of activities on project objectives and outcomes. We share how EVM adds value to scientific communities by illuminating the road ahead.
