Clear communication and a common understanding about the research process are crucial elements in research cooperations with multiple partners involved. To support this process, a web-based research planning tool is developed and tested inside a larger research cooperation. Project planning and managing tools of different complexity already exists but these tools suffer from poor usage in research projects. Literature review on so called Project Management Information Systems lead to key features for project planning systems. Additional requirements analysis leads to a lightweight and easy-to-use standardized project planning form that is implemented as a centralized web-based tool. A small usage study of the tool is carried out in the developing department and enhancements of the concepts are derived from interviews. In 2016 the tool will be rolled out for a larger research cooperation and a larger study about usage and effects on project performance will be accomplished.
