The Project Killer

When I was in grad school, in a well funded research center, I never thought about what could kill a project. Every project last for 2-3 years, or even more. I stayed in the same DOE project throughout my whole grad school career. However, when I came to an industrial/business job, I saw all kinds of project killers time and time again. Basically, each project has to go through a surviving mode before they can come to the commercial stage.

So who are these killers?
