Abstract Interdisciplinary research projects such as Integrated Projects (IP) or Networks of Excellence (NoE) share lot of information and involve collaborative work amongst institutes from many countries with different experience. In the TRACE IP (Tracing the origin of food), the multidisciplinary nature (geochemistry, chemometrics, molecular biology, social sciences, information management), the international partnership (17 countries) and the large amount of information (14 Work packages involving over 250 persons from 50 research teams) that have to be managed, require specific tools to communicate between partners inside the project. For the communication between the partners, as well as the conventional methods of communication (e.g. telephone, meetings, reports) there are now many new tools available to help the project coordinator and the researchers. These range from shared work web spaces and project management tools, to web meetings and to web content management. In the TRACE project, the intranet was implemented under the Microsoft Windows Share Point Services 2003 release 2.0 (https://intranet.trace.eu.org). A project management software, MS Enterprise Project Management Web Access 2003 and 2 web meeting tools, MSN messenger and Webex have been assessed as well.
