One of the main limiting factors that reduce the potential output the innovation projects, involving different organisations and individuals from different geographical areas, is the poor communication and knowledge sharing between members of the virtual team. In this context collaboration and virtual team management are key issues that need to be addressed by today's innovation projects. This paper presents a literature review developed on the concept of collaboration between project team members and the advantages and requirements of virtual teams. A possible solution for the development of a virtual team environment that fosters innovation and ensures a good collaboration between individuals working in an innovation project is also presented. This solution was build using the Microsoft Sharepoint Services Beta 2 collaborative platform.
