In a collaborative European project, such as the UP2U case, with partners from 18 institutions and several countries, there is a need to identify mechanisms with potential to promote work and delight people in the Project Work Packages.

During the last three months, a team meeting once in person and having this face-to-face meeting was important to strengthen relationships and team members to meet face-to-face.

After this phase, the work has become essentially digital, drawing on a panoply of tools with different objectives, but to provide differentiated collaborative teams.

For a team to function well remotely and to effectively engage in an ambitious project, so a company that works in person not even locally, it is necessary to implement and develop a good strategy without meaning to lead a company to achieve greater success in the work that they intend to develop.

Numerous tools with the potential to facilitate the management of tasks and activities such as “Trello”, a collaborative tool that lets teams organize their projects into boards. Trello shows all the tasks inside each board and who's working on what, and allows team to understand where something is in a process.

Also UP2U team are involved every week in remote Video Conference Meetings (needing VC infrastructures and Solutions), Share documents (cloud as google drive), or work collaborative on a document and needs to use for instance, Google docs. In the meantime, team need to schedule meetings (doodle) and so on.

Given a requirement of meeting deadlines with periodic deliveries the solutions founded appears to help to managed the project and to have potential to promote remote collaborative work.

This document is about describing as main tasks and presentations as meaningless support tools to assist all those who must collaborate remotely in a project of this nature.
