The research involved in ProjectIT Initiative involves topics related with software engineering and software development processes, and in applying them to the daily projects in which it is involved. ProjectIT is an ambitious R&D program that integrates some concrete issues related with information systems design, development and operation problems or, in general, the problematic of "projects in the area of information technologies". Its main goal is to provide a complete software development workbench, with support for project management, requirements engineering, analysis, design and code generation features.

ProjectIT intends to produce some results, namely (1) a collaborative tool with Web interface (i.e., with Web-client access) called ProjectIT-Enterprise; and (2) a rich-client tool (windows based) for improved productivity called ProjectIT-Studio. Both tools present tight complementarities and integration mechanisms.
The ProjectIT-Studio version has as its main goal to provide mechanisms for higher productivity to requirements management and specification, models design, automatic code generation and software development.
On the other hand, the ProjectIT-Enterprise version provides mechanism to process definition, collaborative support for team work, emphasizing project management, project-process alignment, workflows and documents management.
