The aim of this project is to understand the specific factors, conditions and challenges underpinning collaborative situations within virtual project teams whose members are spread across various geographical locations. Three in-depth empirical studies on the practices and use of groupware technology in six real-life virtual teams have been conducted: two in industry and four in education. Two main lines of investigation are pursued: the first involves an examination of the organisational issues related to groupware adaptation in virtual project teams, while the second looks at the social context and practices of virtual teams.
